Here is the result of reverting DFP unaligned check:

Here is the result of reverting DFP unaligned check + my DFP alignment

Reverting DFP unaligned check + my DFP alignment patch has following

Gcc 4.3 with reverting DFP unaligned check + my DFP alignment
patch show the similar result:

The problem is those tests define

typedef _Decimal128 Tal1Decimal128 __attribute__((aligned (1)));

That is TImode may be unaligned. We still need to check unaligned
TImode. In fact,
we should see extra failures in 64bit when unaligned _Decimal128 is
passed on stack:

But our testsuite doesn't check it.

I am checking only my patch into trunk/4.3 without reverting DFP
unaligned check.
