I mean iotlb_align_mask == 0x800. Because of  
iotlb_align_mask &= ~(IO_TLB_SIZE - 1);
in line 994 masks away the 0x7FF part
what remains of 0xfff (when PAGE_SHIFT == 12). My idea was to write 
0x800 differently with a reference to PAGE_SHIFT, because for a
larger PAGE_SHIFT we end up with a different pattern and thus
requirement, but didn't really think it through properly because
even (1UL << (PAGE_SHIFT- 1)) (which is for PAGE_SHIFT == 12
0x800) does not tell the full story. Because all bits in the
interval [PAGE_SHIFT,IO_TLB_SHIFT)  matter and not just the most
significant one (for PAGE_SHIFT == 12 and IO_TLB_SHIFT == 1 there is
just one).

Shame on me! Sorry for the confusion!
