Re: aligned_alloc c11 function

Only for strange values of "real". Platforms where sizeof(void *) is
not a power of two predate C (and are part of the reason why C has that
latitude built into it).
Perhaps all, what was the phrase, "industrially relevant" platforms....

How does one do that? I've never managed to figure out a way to
compute lg - neither floor(lg(x)) nor ceil(lg(x)) - at compile time,
unless you count looping by conditionally multiply #including a file
(and that won't work here, because the argument is a sizeof return
value, which is not a preprocessor constant). What have I missed?
