PAGE_SIZE is 64KB by default on PPC64 platform. When vfio passthrough a pci device of which MMIO BARs are smaller than 64KB(PAGE_SIZE), guest would not handle the mmio accesses to the BARs which leads to mmio emulations in host.
This is because vfio would not allow to passthrough one BAR's mmio page which may be shared with other BARs. To solve this performance issue, this patch enforces the alignment of all MMIO BARs allocations to be at least PAGE_SIZE on PPC64 platform because we have enough address space, so that one BAR's mmio page would not be shared with other BARs.
