Actually, generally the P9_IOHDRSZ will not cause the problem, because
24 bytes is too small, but P9_ZC_HDR_SZ(4096 bytes) often cause two pages.

So I have a question about why we need to use P9_ZC_HDR_SZ, actually we
may use P9_IOHDRSZ instead.

Thanks, I will resend the patch later.

Thanks, I will modify it.
