            Bug ID: 27208
           Summary: Make sure  _Unwind_Exception object is double-word
           Product: libc++abi
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: All Bugs

Itanium C++ ABI states that an _Unwind_Exception object should be double-word
(16B) aligned:


However, libc++abi doesn't guarantee it's 16-byte aligned, which caused
programs to crash when __cxa_allocate_exception returned an under-aligned

r264998 fixed clang to lower the expected alignment on Darwin. We should
investigate whether other OSes need similar fixes and whether it's possible to
fix this in libc++abi (instead of in clang) without breaking the ABI.
