Thanks for pointing this out! I've just switched to using the Xarray
implementation in my tree.

I've added a comment as such (or do you have more thoughts on where it
should be documented?), and for consistency removed the PAGE_ALIGN
usage in the heap allocator hooks.

As Andrew already said, It seems page granularity would have to be the
finest allocation granularity for dmabufs. If heaps want to implement
their own larger granularity alignment, I don't see any reason they
would be limited there.

And for me, its mostly because I stubbed my toe implementing the heap
code w/ the first patch that didn't have the page alignment in the
generic code. :)

Thanks for catching that! Much appreciated! Reworked as suggested.

Though I realized last week I have not figured out a consistent way to
have the heaps show up in /dev/dma_heaps/<device> on both Android and
classic Linux environments. I need to go stare at the /dev/input/
setup code some more.

Done!
