    SubjectRe: [PATCH] Round up huge page count to avoid allocating too little memory when 'size' argument is not a multiple of the huge page size.
    Well, PAGE_ALIGN(addr) is already defined as  ALIGN(addr, PAGE_SIZE), so 
    ALIGN can be used with the huge page size easily enough.

    In this case however, the code is calculating a number of pages, not an
    address, so I feel my patch is appropriate.

    FYI, I ran into this issue while allocating huge pages as shared memory
    in userspace. shmget would always succeed, but shmat would fail unless
    the requested size mapped closely to the huge page size. shmget would
    round up to the nearest PAGE_SIZE, but when allocating huge pages this
    obviously isn't enough.

    On systems with multiple huge page sizes, it isn't obvious what the huge
    page size will be for a shmget request. It only becomes obvious in
    hugetlbfs, so that is where I made the change.

    Regards,

    Steven Truelove
