[LLVMdev] Size/Alignment handling bug?

I think there's possible bug in alignment handling. When getTypeInfo function 
in TargetData.cpp is called on:

   [100 x short]

it always returns 200 as the size. However, if alignment for short is '4', 
then each array element should be aligned at 4-byte boundary, and the total 
size of the array is more like 400.

For a while, I've made the attached local modification. Does it makes sense?

P.S. It's a lot of fun writing codegen for a target which has no support for 
addressing/working with individual bytes ;-)
