Description
The per-lgrp chuck size can be incorrectly computed because of the non-associativity of the floating point operations:

Expression z = x1 * y / x2 with x1 <= x2 can yield z > y, which applied to chunk size computation can result in a chunk size bigger that available.

SUGGESTED FIX Rearrange operations, so that the precision is not lost: z = x1 / x2 * y;
