This works fine with gcc, but the problem is that this code is
compiled with HOST_CC (to cross-build the magic file using
mkmagic). HOST_CC may not be gcc, and thus not know the packed

So, it most be solved in another way, probably by padding
struct file in such a way that it's the same on all archs.
