I got that overnight too. Things are even more tricky...
I guess we want to 32bit align DFmode, DImode, XFmode and their complex
variants, but not TFmode, SSE modes and MMX modes.
Unfortunately __m64 is typdefed to long long. This makes problems for
x86-64 ABI, as then it will be passed in the integer register, instead
of memory, as specified. What kind of breakage can cause if I retype it
to let say... V8QI?
