[PATCH v5 1/4] sh: Advertise gigantic page support

sh actually supports gigantic pages and selecting
ARCH_HAS_GIGANTIC_PAGE allows it to allocate and free
gigantic pages at runtime.

At least sdk7786_defconfig exposes such a configuration with
huge pages of 64MB, pages of 4KB and MAX_ORDER = 11:
HPAGE_SHIFT (26) - PAGE_SHIFT (12) = 14 >= MAX_ORDER (11)
