Interesting. You are correct there was no config component, at the time
I didn't have direct evidence that any architecture needed it, only that
we had an unchecked requirement on zones, a requirement that had only
recently arrived with the changes to free buddy detection. I note that
MAX_ORDER is 17 for ia64 so that probabally accounts for the
missalignment. It is clear that the reporting is slightly over-zelous
as I am reporting zero-sized zones. I'll get that fixed and patch to
you. I'll also have a look at the patch as added to -mm and try and get
the rest of the spelling sorted :-/.

I'll go see if we currently have a machine to test this config on.
