DATA_ALIGNMENT vs. DECL_USER_ALIGNMENT

But the compiler can't tell whether, when you specify alignment for a
type, you mean for interface or for efficiency, so I think it
shouldn't make an assumption that it's to be used only for the former
case like you seem to believe it should do.
No, I don't believe that, but it's not relevant. Because it *might*
have been meant for interface, the compiler is not allowed to change
the alignment of types.
