The situation is a bit different though, because the main (and single?) case 
for which TYPE_ALIGN_OK had been necessary in the middle-end was made obsolete 
by a gigi change at some point.  And indeed extensive testing of Bernd's patch 
on a strict-alignment platform didn't reveal any issue.

So no objection to the patch on principle by me.
