Sorry, that was a typo.  meant to leave original -1

NET_IP_ALIGN is defined as 0 on some platforms where cost of unaligned
DMA is greater than the cost of unaligned access. But in this case, the
driver is copying into the buffer, so the cost of unaligned DMA is not involved
so just align the data.
