PAGE_SIZE can drop the warning, as the dma allocated size is PAGE_SIZE.

The unbounded size is only passed to fm10k_add_rx_frag, which expects
and checks size to be less than FM10K_RX_HDR_LEN which is 256.

In this way, any boundary between 256 and 4K should work. I could address
that with a second version.
