RE: A proposal to align GCC stack
My proposal is supposed not limited to i386/x86_64. Would do please
spend some time review it and see if it can really solve problem in PowerPC?
Your comments is welcome.
Thanks - Joey

Can we stop talking about x86/x86_64 specifics issues here? I have an
use case for the PowerPC side of the Cell BE for variables greater
than the normal stack boundary alignment of 16bytes. They need to be
128byte aligned for DMA transfering to the SPUs.
I already proposed a patch  to fix this use case but I have not
seen many replies yet.
