Oh fun.
I'd pick this up and run the ptrace tests that we have for this. If they
pass I'd apply to my fixes branch and send after the merge window unless
I hear objections.

Fwiw, what was the original reason for using
__attribute__((__aligned__(sizeof(__u32))))?
b4 mbox is failing to download the relevant thread(s) for me.

Thanks!
Christian
