Provide a function, readahead_expand(), that expands the set of pages
specified by a readahead_control object to encompass a revised area with a
proposed size and length.

The proposed area must include all of the old area and may be expanded yet
more by this function so that the edges align on (transparent huge) page
boundaries as allocated.

The expansion will be cut short if a page already exists in either of the
areas being expanded into.  Note that any expansion made in such a case is
not rolled back.

This will be used by fscache so that reads can be expanded to cache granule
boundaries, thereby allowing whole granules to be stored in the cache, but
there are other potential users also.
