malloc Alignment

malloc is guaranteed to return memory that's aligned on a boundary that's suitable for storing any object that could fit in the amount of memory that's allocated. For example, a four-byte allocation is aligned on a boundary that supports any four-byte or smaller object. Memory alignment on a boundary that's suitable for an object that's larger than will fit in the allocation is not guaranteed.
