A value of integral type or enumeration type can be explicitly converted to
a pointer.10) A pointer converted to an integer of sufficient size (if any
such exists on the implementation) and back to the same pointer type will
have its original value; mappings between pointers and integers are
otherwise implementation-defined.

This implies the value shall not be aligned when converted. The constant is
thus irrelevant.
