My information may be old or irrelevant but I have used structs with no members with gcc backend, but with nonzero size and alignment, and ran into backend problems, particularly on sparc64, passing them as parameters. 

Is that what is being used here?
Maybe best to add some members to achieve equivalent size/alignment?
