Shouldn't we split these checks out so that we can have more precise
error reporting?  Ideally we'd share that chunk_size was not a multiple
of the "origin" or "snapshot" device's blocksize.

I was also thinking that we should avoid using %, e.g.: 
(chunk_size & (bdev_logical_block_size(...) - 1))

but AFAIK bdev_logical_block_size() may not be a power of 2 (MD allows
for obscure non-power of 2 blocksizes doesn't it?  Or is that just for
MD chunk and stripe size?).
