The manual says:
The `aligned' attribute can only increase the alignment; but you
can decrease it by specifying `packed' as well. See below.
But it doesn't seem to behave that way. The third argument to .comm, below,
is alignment (i686-pc-linux-gnu):
drow@nevyn:/big/codesourcery% echo 'int x __attribute__((__aligned__(1)));' >qqqq.c
drow@nevyn:/big/codesourcery% gcc -S qqqq.c
drow@nevyn:/big/codesourcery% cat qqqq.s
.ident "GCC: (GNU) 3.3.4 (Debian 1:3.3.4-2)"
Shouldn't that be x,4,4? Same thing happens with non-common variables, in
3.3 and HEAD.
