I don't know if you support 32 bit binaries on x86_64, but if you do (or
intend to), then this structure will need translating. The x86 compiler
aligns 64 bit quantities on 32 bit boundaries (as far as I am aware)
whereas (I am pretty sure) the x86_64 compiler aligns them to 64 bit
boundaries. This is fine for ppc/ppc64 as both align 64bit quantities on
64 bit boundaries.
