The testcase just reproduces the real world behavior, see the original mail
One can see in real world runtime [...]
When you run an executable in shell and look at its /proc/PID/maps you see the
mapping just is not 2MB-aligned, the testcase reproduces that behavior.
We would need to change Linux kernel (not the testcase) if we want the library
mapping to be really 2MB-aligned like elfutils currently expects.
