Yeah, round_down is fine too.

Actually I was thinking about this too. But the THPeligible bit shown
by smaps is a little bit ambiguous for file vma. The document says:
"THPeligible" indicates whether the mapping is eligible for allocating
THP pages - 1 if true, 0 otherwise.

Even though it doesn't fulfill the alignment, it is still possible to
get THP allocated, but just can't be PMD mapped. So the old behavior
of THPeligible for file vma seems problematic, or at least doesn't
match the document.

I should elaborate this in the commit log.

Fine to me.
