Just one minor nit..
As I understand _contig above is an artefact of the previous approach
with dedicated function for contiguous allocation. If so, description
should be updated to avoid confusion.

Otherwise, account for the fact that unless we're in IOVA_AS_VA
mode, we cannot guarantee that the pages would be physically
contiguous, so we calculate the memzone size and alignments as if
we were getting the smallest page size available.

However, for the non-IOVA contiguous case, existing mempool size
calculation function doesn't give us expected results, because it
will return memzone sizes aligned to page size (e.g. a 1MB mempool
may use an entire 1GB page), therefore in cases where we weren't
specifically asked to reserve non-contiguous memory, first try
reserving a memzone as IOVA-contiguous, and if that fails, then
try reserving with page-aligned size/alignment.
