ARM has stricter alignment rules than many other architectures. In this case,
pageheap_memory is being declared as a char array, so it is not aligned by the
compiler. It is later used as TCMalloc_PageHeap*, which does require alignment.

When building under ARM, this patch tells the compiler to stricly align
pageheap_memory so that pageheap_memory can be used as TCMalloc_PageHeap*. It
does not affect other platforms.
