Yes, as Jeff recommends I'll do a follow on patch to make this an
explicit guarantee of bdev_direct_access() just like the page
alignment.

I changed to HPAGE_SIZE on advice from Dave Hansen. I'll insert a
preceding cleanup patch in this series to do the conversion since we
should be consistent with the use of PAGE_SIZE in the other dax paths.

Ditto on the rebuttal.
