[8-byte alignment]

The reason I asked is that some Mallocs use a union with a type that 
requires maximum alignment (eg double).  That won't work here, since no 
type on the ARM requires that by default -- it's just that we can generate 
more efficient code in some cases if we know that they are more aligned 
than that.
