Do you have a test case handy? I can see a potential gap with a
namespace that used internal padding to fix up the alignment. The goal
of this check is to catch cases that are just going to fail
devm_memremap_pages(), and the expectation is that it could not have
worked before unless it was ported from another platform, or someone
flipped the page-size switch on PowerPC.

The model is a new default 16MB alignment is enforced at creation
time, but if you need to support previously created namespaces then
you can manually trim that alignment requirement to no less than
memremap_compat_align() because that's the point at which
devm_memremap_pages() will start failing or crashing.
