shmem: respect MAX_LFS_FILESIZE

SHMEM_MAX_BYTES was derived from the maximum size of its triple-indirect
swap vector, forgetting to take the MAX_LFS_FILESIZE limit into account.
Never mind 256kB pages, even 8kB pages on 32-bit kernels allowed files to
grow slightly bigger than that supposed maximum.

Fix this by using the min of both (at build time not run time).  And it
happens that this calculation is good as far as 8MB pages on 32-bit or
16MB pages on 64-bit: though SHMSWP_MAX_INDEX gets truncated before that,
it's truncated to such large numbers that we don't need to care.

[ it needs pagemap.h]
[ fix sparc64 min() warnings]

* The maximum size of a shmem/tmpfs file is limited by the maximum size of
* its triple-indirect swap vector - see illustration at shmem_swp_entry().
* With 4kB page size, maximum file size is just over 2TB on a 32-bit kernel,
* but one eighth of that on a 64-bit kernel. With 8kB page size, maximum
* file size is just over 4TB on a 64-bit kernel, but 16TB on a 32-bit kernel,
* MAX_LFS_FILESIZE being then more restrictive than swap vector layout.
* We use / and * instead of shifts in the definitions below, so that the swap
* vector can be tested with small even values (e.g. 20) for ENTRIES_PER_PAGE.
