I'm not quite clear on what you're asking about -- you said something
about dst_addr%4 == src_addr%4.  EXA doesn't have anything to help you
with that -- it can only ensure that the offset in card space is aligned
to a multiple of some number, and/or the pitch of the pixmap is aligned
to some number.  However, simply having the on-card offset aligned to 16
and then doing a fixup on the system memory buffer (if necessary, which
it usually wouldn't be, I bet) after copying out seems reasonable to me.
