Full version, I think this should do the right thing. If the kernel and
app side isn't aligned on the same SHM_COLOUR boundary, we'll return
-EINVAL rather than setup the ring.

For the ring-buf-alloc branch, this is handled automatically. But we
should, as you mentioned, ensure that the kernel doesn't allow setting
something up that will not work.

Note that this is still NOT related to your hang, I honestly have no
idea what that could be. Unfortunately parisc doesn't have a lot of
debugging aids for this... Could even be a generic kernel issue. I
looked up your rp3440, and it sounds like we have basically the same
setup. I'm running a dual socket PA8900 at 1GHz.
