I think, this fix is necessary for all the architectures want to
perform DMA into kmalloc caches and need a guaranteed alignment
larger than the alignment of a 64-bit integer.
An example is sh architecture where ARCH_KMALLOC_MINALIGN is L1_CACHE_BYTES.

As side effect, these kind of objects cannot be visible
within the /proc/slab_allocators file.
