I think it even was me who reported this bug with XFS originally :-) 

Yes, plain kmalloc() doesn't give you alignment guarantees (it is very
easy to prove, e.g. with CONFIG_KASAN), however, kmem_cache_create() (and
dma_pool_create() to that matter) has explicit 'align' parameter and it
is a bug if it is not respected.
