My question was not about the ABI, I know the basics of that. I do not
know how the Sun C compiler behaves though.
The Sun C compiler message is "arning: can not set non-default
alignment for automatic variable", which seems to indicate that it just
ignores the alignment, which would mean the issue still would be the
same for amd64.
Another possibility would be that the compiler has a special case for
And a third one would be that the message actually should be "assuming
sufficiently aligned stack for non-default alignment for automatic
variable", which IMO is the most reasonable way to handle it by default.
