Thanks a lot for testing this! I know there were big effort behind this
and it definitely will improve the quality of the patchset greatly!

15179776 < 15179xxx <= 17027064

15179776 % 4096 = 0

And 15179776 = 15179768 + 8

So I guess we have some alignment bug. Could you try the patches
attached? It deal with some alignment issue.

Thanks again!
