It seems it is used as a fix by many people (I found this using
google).  But at the moment pupa_memalign is not used anywhere in
PUPA.  And AFAIK it does not even matter for the currently code if it
is supported.

If you want to fix it this way, it would be better to check for the
existence of memalign using autoconf IMHO.

Do you mean for GRUB 2?  Please keep us up-to-date what you are doing
to prevent people from doing double work.

Can you please make a patch using the -p argument as well?  In that
case it is visible which function was changed.

Can you please be more clear here?  It would be better to notice
everything you changed and added.
