All the places I can see with a "too small" alignment are not
suballocated, so the backend will force alignment to minimum GPU page
size anyway.

If someone wants to go through all these calls and fix them up
explicitly too, then, patches welcome.  The posted patch, however,
isn't the right way to go about this, and I couldn't find an example
yet that'd cause an actual breakage.
