Actually I shouldn't, the alignment should be computed early, taking the
field size into account.

That's not a problem though, I've just substracted the u32 field once
I found the final aligned size.

See below:

Subject: [PATCH 6/3] perfcounter: Substract the buffer size field from the event record size
We compute the perf raw sample size by aligning the raw ftrace event
size plus the buffer size field itself. We do that instead of aligning
only the perf raw sample size, so that we might economize some in some
cases.

But this buffer size field is not stored in the perf raw sample, we
must then substract its size from the buffer once we computed the
alignment unless we may get a useless u32 field in the buffer.
