Ug.  Nice of the linker folk to talk to the abi folk before
coming up with that gem.

I don't like the patch much -- it's too invasive on other
systems, and it infers entirely different behaviour from
the magic value 4.

And is this _really_ the vtable layout the HP folk are using
in ilp32 mode?

Assuming yes, I'd prefer you add a TARGET_VTABLE_ENTRY_ALIGN
define, then use _that_ to set DECL_ALIGN and add the other
necessary spaceing.
