Now that all hugepage page processing is done in a single file, clean
up the code.

Maybe specify what happens/should happen in a case like:

hugepages=100 default_hugepagesz=1G

Does that allocate 100 2MB pages or 100 1G pages? Assuming the default
size is 2MB.

Also, regarding Randy's comment. It may be nice to keep these docs in
one place only, so we don't have to maintain 2 docs in sync.

We don't set parsed_valid_hugepagesz to false at the end of this
function, shouldn't we? Parsing a hugepages= value should 'consume' a
previously defined hugepagesz= value, so that this is invalid IIUC:

hugepagesz=x hugepages=z hugepages=y
