quote from slab.h:
 * Some archs want to perform DMA into kmalloc caches and need a guaranteed
 * alignment larger than the alignment of a 64-bit integer.
 * Setting ARCH_KMALLOC_MINALIGN in arch headers allows that.

ARCH_DMA_MINALIGN is for the whole system, maybe we could give a
DMA_MINALIGN Kconfig entry in arch/riscv?
