[libstdc++/65033] Give alignment info to libatomic

When we fixed PR54005, making sure that atomic_is_lock_free returns the same
value for all objects of a given type, we probably should have changed the
interface so that we would pass size and alignment rather than size and object

Instead, we decided that passing null for the object pointer would be
sufficient.  But as this PR shows, we really do need to take alignment into

The following patch constructs a fake object pointer that is maximally
misaligned.  This allows the interface to both the builtin and to libatomic to
remain unchanged.  Which probably makes this back-portable to maintenance
releases as well.

I believe that for all of our current systems, size_t == uintptr_t, so the
reinterpret_cast ought not generate warnings.

The test case is problematic, as there's currently no good place to put it.
The libstdc++ testsuite doesn't have the libatomic library path configured, and
the libatomic testsuite doesn't have the libstdc++ include paths configured.
Yet another example where we really need an install tree for testing.  Thoughts?
