I see how you did it. Is it because posix_memalign() isn't as portable as
we'd like it to be? (I wrote "memalign" by mistake, which is the name of
a deprecated function that does a similar job)
It seems like a lot of memory is allocated unaligned. Is that normal? If
the memory allocations you've align cover the most speed-critical memory,
then why did Tim say that about memory alignment?
