SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 04/10] DMA, CMA: support alignment constraint on cma region

I've noticed it earlier and cannot seem to get to terms with this. It
should IMO be PPC, KVM and CMA since those are acronyms. But if you
have strong feelings, it's not a big issue.

“must be power of 2 or zero”.

Nit: Align with the rest of the arguments, i.e.:

+ pr_debug("%s(size %lx, base %08lx, limit %08lx align_order %08lx)\n",
+ __func__, (unsigned long)size, (unsigned long)base,
+ (unsigned long)limit, (unsigned long)alignment);
