PARISC: fix virtual aliasing issue in get_shared_area()

This turns out to be correct and we need to pay attention to the pgoff as well as the address when creating the virtual address for the area. Fortunately, the bug is rarely triggered as most applications which use pgoff tend to use large values (git being the primary one, and it uses pgoff in multiples of 16MB) which are larger than our cache coherency modulus, so the problem isn't often seen in practise.
