Right, will fix.

Thanks a lot for reviewing.

I know sizeof(struct page) has handled its own struct alignment and
padding. About __alignof__(struct page), will it conflict with below
code to convert pfn < -- > page? Not sure if I got your point.

#elif defined(CONFIG_SPARSEMEM_VMEMMAP)

/* memmap is virtually contiguous.  */
#define __pfn_to_page(pfn)      (vmemmap + (pfn))
#define __page_to_pfn(page)     (unsigned long)((page) - vmemmap)

#elif...
