[llvm-dev] Do Frontends need to care about alignment?

Meant to add more text, but somehow the email got sent.

Could you explain why for some of these cases? If I set the right target
and only want to operate with the system C ABI, will LLVM not generate
correct code if I want to pay say structs to a system defined function?

I see clang specifying alignment, but I'm not sure why.

I want to understand beyond alignment and function ABI (which for my case
is also system's C ABI) what makes my LLVM IR platform dependent.
