[PATCH v2 0/6] qom: Allow object to be aligned

From: Richard Henderson
Subject: [PATCH v2 0/6] qom: Allow object to be aligned
Date: Tue, 15 Sep 2020 17:46:32 -0700

I've seen some failures on arm and s390x hosts after
enabling host vector support.  It turns out that the
malloc for these hosts does not provide 16-byte alignment.

We already have a function that can alloc with alignment,
but we need to pass this down from the structure.  We also
don't want to use this function unconditionally, because
the windows version does page allocation, which would be
overkill for the vast majority of the objects allocated.

Changes in v2:
  * Add _aligned_malloc patch for win32.  For what it's
    worth, this passes a gitlab cross-compile test.

  * Add and use qemu_max_align_t for choosing between
    g_malloc and qemu_memalign.

    I had been discussing extra checks for i386-linux with
    Eduardo, but then it occured to me that both linux libc
    posix_memalign is smart enough to not imply extra overhead.
    So qemu_memalign with alignment <= malloc alignment is
    handled easily by the system.
