Martin,

This is not required because DM assumes alignment_offset has already
been accounted for by the caller (e.g. LVM2 or some other ficitional DM
consumer).

Below, "start" represents the aligned start of the data for a given volume.
That start must have already been shifted by alignment_offset; as is the
case with lvm2 (>= 2.02.51), see the following lvm2 commits:
http://sources.redhat.com/git/gitweb.cgi?p=lvm2.git;a=commit;h=282029eb45e56
http://sources.redhat.com/git/gitweb.cgi?p=lvm2.git;a=commit;h=6c88b6c660020

All this being said, how did you arrive at this patch?  Why do you feel
it is needed?  Was it just from code inspection?

Regards,
Mike
