mempool: fix virtual address population
Currently, populate_virt will check if mempool is already populated. This will cause inability to reserve multi-chunk mempools if contiguous memory is not a hard requirement, because if allocating all-contiguous memory fails, mempool will retry with virtual addresses and will call populate_virt. It seems that the original code never anticipated more than one non-physically contiguous area. Fix it by removing the check in populate virt. populate_anon() function calls populate_virt() also, and it can be reasonably inferred that it is expecting that virtual area is not already populated. Even though a similar check is already in place there, also add the check that was part of populate_virt() just in case.
