So we really must use 4 byte stack alignment on i386 by default?  I have
attached a diff to llvm for this, but I would like to verify that it is
really correct.  Apparently Darwin, Linux and Solaris all use 16 byte

The Sys V ABI seems to say only: "The stack is word aligned.  Although
the architecture does not require any alignment of the stack, software
convention and the operating system requires that the stack be aligned
on a word boundary".
