I think it's specific to x86 as other architectures have the same type
alignments for 32- and 64-bit variants.

This doesn't make sense.  32-bit compat needs to work like 32-bit native
- no exceptions, no workarounds in userland.  And if you really want to
work around this in userland you'll need a run-time, not compile-time,
check.
