x86 is special because of the pt_regs-based syscall interface. It
would be nice to get all arches to that point eventually.

It probably can be made unconditional. That will take some research
on which arches have the implicit alignment requirement. From looking
at the existing compat handlers, ARM, MIPS, and PowerPC 32-bit ABIs
need alignment.
