           Summary: LLVM should support alignment for alloca/SIMD/etc
           Product: libraries
           Version: trunk
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Common Code Generator Code
        AssignedTo: unassignedbugs at nondot.org
        ReportedBy: duraid at octopus.com.au

On ia64, most C++ programs currently fail, for both the C and native back-ends. 
This is because calls to setjmp are made where the argument=8 (mod 16). This is
illegal and gets you a bus error. On ia64, /usr/include/bits/setjmp.h has:

typedef long __jmp_buf[_JBLEN] __attribute__ ((aligned (16))); /* guarantees
128-bit alignment! */

but LLVM doesn't preserve such alignment.
