A number of structures and buffers passed to PKS hcalls have alignment
requirements, which could on occasion cause problems:

- Authorisation structures must be 16-byte aligned and must not cross a
  page boundary

- Label structures must not cross page boundaries

- Password output buffers must not cross page boundaries

To ensure correct alignment, we adjust the allocation size of each of
these structures/buffers to be the closest power of 2 that is at least the
size of the structure/buffer (since kmalloc() guarantees that an
allocation of a power of 2 size will be aligned to at least that size).

v3: Merge plpks fixes and signed update series with secvar series

v4: Fix typo in commit message

    Move up in series (npiggin)

v5: Reword commit message to better explain alignment guarantee (mpe)
