mm: make do_mmap_pgoff return populate as a size in bytes, not as a bool
do_mmap_pgoff() rounds up the desired size to the next PAGE_SIZE multiple, however there was no equivalent code in mm_populate(), which caused issues. This could be fixed by introduced the same rounding in mm_populate(), however I think it's preferable to make do_mmap_pgoff() return populate as a size rather than as a boolean, so we don't have to duplicate the size rounding logic in mm_populate().
