Interesting we didn't validate that, but the userspace validation is
tighter.

        if (lp->region_size % (pagesize >> SECTOR_SHIFT)) {
                log_error("Region size (%" PRIu32 ") must be a multiple of "
                          "machine memory page size (%d)",
                          lp->region_size, pagesize >> SECTOR_SHIFT);

The validation should be consistent between userspace and kernel.
