Seems still some misunderstanding about the change :( I'm sorry if I
did not explain it clearly.

Previously I missed the PHYSICAL_ALIGN can change according to .config
I mean we should change the value to CONFIG_PHYSICAL_ALIGN for X86
And I suggest to move back to keep using 16M. And do not change it in
this series.
