This corresponds to huge_page_size, maybe you can exploit this fact here.

Something like

alignment = 1;

/* On s390x, the host address must always be aligned to the THP size */
#ifndef __s390x__
if (src_type == VM_MEM_SRC_ANONYMOUS_THP)
#endif
	alignment = huge_page_size;

Maybe in a nicer fashion. Not sure.
