| State-Changed-Why:
|     I can see this as well, but I imagine the syntax is wrong:
|     shouldn't it be
|         typedef struct { } __attribute__((__aligned__(__alignof__(int)))) Y;
|     
|     instead of
|     
|         typedef struct { } Y __attribute__((__aligned__(__alignof__(int))));
|     
|     ??

Maybe.  But then, I think __alignof__(Y) should return
__alignof__(int) if the attribute is being applied to Y.

Said differently, what do you envision for the "right" syntax for

   typedef unsigned char type[sizeof(int)] 
             __attribute__((__aligned__(__alignof__(int))));

?
