Probably not, but that's not what would happen on x86: the shift
only depends on the lower 5 or 6 bits - I don't know if other platforms
also has that behaviour. So for align_order == 2 and x86_32 we'd
effectively end up with a shift of 62 & 31 == 30 (though technically
undefined behaviour), and the desired mask of 0x3.

Wouldn't GENMASK(align_order-1, 0) work for all cases (assuming
align_order has a sane value)?
