Subject[PATCH 5/6] jump label: Add _ASM_ALIGN for x86 and x86_64
From: Jason Baron <jbaron@redhat.com>

The linker should not be adding holes to word size aligned pointers, but
out of paranoia we are explicitly specifying that alignment. I have not
seen any holes in the jump label section in practice.
