	is the following "__attribute__((aligned(4))__" still necessary?
	i don't think it needed for in6_aliasreq, at least.


struct  ifreq           ifr, ridreq;
struct  ifaliasreq      addreq __attribute__((aligned(4)));
#ifdef INET6
struct  in6_ifreq       ifr6;
struct  in6_ifreq       in6_ridreq;
struct  in6_aliasreq    in6_addreq __attribute__((aligned(4)));
