Yes, I think it is better because in this way we do not need to add extra code
to do the rounding.

Curiosity, did you try your patches with SLUB red zoning enabled?
Since the area used for the Redzone is just after the payload, aligning the
object_size independently from the allocator could have side effects, at least
if I understand well how the mechanism works.

Setting ARCH_SLAB_MINALIGN should avoid this as well.

What do you think?
