Right. Or this means that EpsilonMaxTLABSize has to be additionally checked for alignment before
use. If EpsilonMaxTLABSize is proper, then size is always aligned too, even if it gets capped by
_max_tlab_size, right?

Unfortunately, I have already pushed the fix, and can follow up on this in a separate RFE.
