infiniband: Fix alignment of mmap cookies to support VIPT caching

When vmalloc_user is used to create memory that is supposed to be mmap'd
to user space, it is necessary for the mmap cookie (eg the offset) to be
aligned to SHMLBA.

This creates a situation where all virtual mappings of the same physical
page share the same virtual cache index and guarantees VIPT coherence.
Otherwise the cache is non-coherent and the kernel will not see writes
by userspace when reading the shared page (or vice-versa).
