Subject: PCI: Correct the resource_alignment parameter example

The option description requires an order and so does the option
parsing code, however the example uses a size, fix this.

Fixes: 8b078c603249 ("PCI: Update "pci=resource_alignment" documentation")

 				Specifies alignment and device to reassign
 				aligned memory resources. How to
 				specify the device is described above.
 				If <order of align> is not specified,
 				PAGE_SIZE is used as alignment.
 				PCI-PCI bridge can be specified, if resource
 				windows need to be expanded.
 				To specify the alignment for several
 				instances of a device, the PCI vendor,
 				device, subvendor, and subdevice may be
-				specified, e.g., 4096@pci:8086:9c22:103c:198f

 				off: Turn ECRC off
 				on: Turn ECRC on.
 		hpiosize=nn[KMG]	The fixed amount of bus space which is
