DM also does a stacking pass without a bdev (dm_calculate_queue_limits),
although I think you can avoid that by getting rid of ti_limits
altogether and just stack limits.

I couldn't figure out why the alignment_offset for a misaligned DM
device was zero, despite being -1 after stacking had completed.  I
finally spotted this in dm_table_set_restrictions():

        limits->alignment_offset = 0;
        limits->misaligned = 0;

So after all the stacking function's hard work you set the alignment to
0 and clear the misaligned flag.  Why?
