This looks fine.

These look okay too but if it helps percpu allocator can expose the
maximum size / alignment supported to take out the guessing game too.

Also, the reason why PCPU_MIN_UNIT_SIZE is what it is is because
nobody needed anything bigger. Increasing the size doesn't really
cost much at least on 64bit archs. Is that something we want to be
considering?

Thanks.
