 It's not clear either from this patch description or from the commit 
referred what the actual *purpose* of the alignment check is and therefore 
I think it's hard to say which of the two commits needs to be indicated as 
the offender.  Without further data I tend to agree it's 79edff12060f that 
ought to be referred, being the immediate cause of the regression, as 
things obviously worked before, for 5+ years.

 That for sure.
