[PATCH] Module per-cpu alignment cannot always be met

The module code assumes noone will ever ask for a per-cpu area more than
SMP_CACHE_BYTES aligned.  However, as these cases show, gcc asks sometimes
asks for 32-byte alignment for the per-cpu section on a module, and if
CONFIG_X86_L1_CACHE_SHIFT is 4, we hit that BUG_ON().  This is obviously an
unusual combination, as there have been few reports, but better to warn
than die.
