"Over and over"?  One line for an alignment?

The only way to do the rounding correctly not in the back end
is to do the entire frame layout not in the back end.  Rounding
just the size of the local variable store is _always_ not the
right thing to do.  Ideally you want to round the size of the
entire frame -- locals, save regs, outgoing args, varargs spill
and everything.
