Another way to look at it is that USB (at least EHCI) uses page-aligned
data and that for the first descriptor you can optionally add an offset
within the page. Effectively this gives you 1-byte alignment, but it
comes with the restriction that on crossing the page boundary, all data
comes from offset 0 on subsequent pages.
