DATA_ALIGNMENT vs. DECL_USER_ALIGNMENT

I definitely think the bug is *not* in varasm.c. If I write
"double x __attribute__((aligned(1)))", I expect to see
in the assembly file.
of course. That's because in this case you are setting the alignment
of the *object*, not the *type*.
I definitely think there's a bug in that the Ada front end sets
DECL_USER_ALIGN for these objects and the C front end (in response to
the auto-generated files) does not. That mis-match should be
addressed in some way -- either by not setting DECL_USER_ALIGN in Ada
But it *isn't* set in Ada!
