I'm still not a fan of the fixed implementation. For the cost of the
division as I said before you could make this flexible like
page_frag_alloc_align and just decrement the bias by one per
allocation instead of trying to batch it.

I'm sure there would likely be implementations that might need to
operate at two different sizes, for example a header and payload size.

Having to call this to free the page seems confusing. Rather than
reserving multiple and having to free the page multiple times I really
think you would be better off just holding one bias reservation on the
page at a time.
