    Try determining the alignment of u64 on i386. You will be surprised.

    #include <stdio.h>

    typedef long long u64;
    struct u64_s { u64 x; } x;

    int main ()
    printf ("%d\n", __alignof__ (u64));
    printf ("%d\n", __alignof__ (x));
    return 0;

    Btw, the iptables compat code was broken due to this.
