    The zones have to be aligned, there's no question about that. The
    preferred alignment is in the megabyte range, rather than in individual
    pages. In fact, I would suggest always making sure that it is aligned to
    the largest order that get_free_page() supports, and I think that's true
    of all current architectures..
