Is why I added to brd:
/* This is so fdisk will align partitions on 4k, because of
* direct_access API needing 4k alignment, returning a PFN
* (This is only a problem on very small devices <= 4M,
* otherwise fdisk will align on 1M. Regardless this call

blk_queue_physical_block_size(brd->brd_queue, PAGE_SIZE);

Perhaps add the same to pmem, and/or perhaps make mkfs.extX
also inspect this and not create blocks smaller then physical_block_size?
