Yes, that makes sense for now.

There may be an issue before 24.1 comes out.  If Gnulib is later updated,
with a fix that Emacs needs before 24.1, and we then merge from the
updated Gnulib, the merge will contain code that assumes <stdalign.h>.
We'd need to either merge the Gnulib part of the postponed patch,
or edit the Gnulib code by hand after importing it, to undo its
assumption of <stdalign.h>.

We can cross this bridge if we come to it, which I hope we don't....
