I think it will be correct.

The above will be a (base) page size aligned offset into the file.
This offset will be huge page aligned in the fallocate hole punch
code.

/*
* For hole punch round up the beginning offset of the hole and
* round down the end.
*/
hole_start = (offset + hpage_size - 1) & ~huge_page_mask(h);
hole_end = (offset + len - (hpage_size - 1)) * ~huge_page_mask(h);

Was the alignment your concern, or something else?
