My case is different! alignment_reserve() returns 0:
alignment_reserve() = MAX2(tlab_alloc_reserve(), 
_reserve_for_allocation_prefetch) =
MAX2(min_dummy_object_size() > MinObjAlignment ? min_dummy_object_size() 
: 0, is_server_compilation_mode_vm() ? a+b*c/d : 0) =
MAX2(2 > 2 ? 2 : 0, 0 ? a+b*c/d : 0) = MAX2(0, 0) = 0
