I used __alignof__. While I had some trouble finding docs, it appears to
work fairly simply. When given a type, it will return the number of bytes of
padding needed to reach proper memory alignment. For example, the
NihAllocCtx struct has sizeof 20 on my system, and __alignof__(NihAllicCtx)
returns 4. In theory on x86 it would return 0 and hopefully the compiler
will be smart enough to optimize it out.

I will do this immediately.
