This is handled already by rounding up region size to page size in ShenandoahHeapRegion::setup_sizes
(yes, it is awkward, but well...):

  // Make sure region size is at least one large page, if enabled.
  // Otherwise, uncommitting one region may falsely uncommit the adjacent
  // regions too.
  // Also see shenandoahArguments.cpp, where it handles UseLargePages.
  if (UseLargePages && ShenandoahUncommit) {
    region_size = MAX2(region_size, os::large_page_size());

I think it is tested by one of our regression tests.

Not here. I really need to push the other two bugfixes.
