I don't see how that would work here, as the required alignment is a per-bio
thing which depends on whether the bio has an encryption context or not, and (if
it does) also the data_unit_size the submitter of the bio selected.

We could just always assume the worst-case scenario, but that seems
unnecessarily pessimistic?
