I only use blk_off_t in the places where we're dealing with absolute
offsets.

Blindly converting alignment_offset from int to unsigned long won't
work.  We depend on being able to return -1 in case of
misalignment. Hence int and not unsigned int. Furthermore, the returned
values are always modulo the granularity so int is plenty big.

So NAK from here.
