    I agree with the basic idea (the big alignments also always annoy
    me when I look at disassembly), but I think your CONFIG options
    are far too complicated. I don't think anybody will go as far as
    to tune loops vs function calls.

    I would just do a single CONFIG_NO_ALIGNMENTS that sets everything to
    1, that should be enough.
