Moving them to tools also make them open to more users instead of hide in
Documentation folder.

Well, hugepage-mmap, hugepage-shm, and map_hugetlb are examples, not really tools. So, only page-types is probably a tool, but I leave this to Fengguang to decide.

Also fixed several coding style problem.

Make it another patch for people to review. :)
