After looking closer there seems to be various type inconsistencies in
the alignment_offset and discard_alignment related routines (returning
'int' in places, etc).

The following patch is what I found; I have no problem with switching
from 'unsigned long' to blk_off_t for LBD though.

Martin, would like to carry forward with this?  Have I gone overboard
with this patch?
