Patch looks fine except that it has tabs (LLVM uses only spaces for
indentation).  Also, can you generate the patch using "svn diff"?
It's currently in some unusual format which "patch" doesn't recognize.

Huh.  For correctness, I guess you'll have to round up the alignment,
and abort on anything higher than 256.  (Also, perhaps the front-end
should avoid generating such constructs in the first place when
targeting Windows, but that's a separate issue.)
