You're mixing aligned and unaligned types. Shouldn't all be unaligned?
See the docs: "Warning: Code that uses aligned types is possibly
non-portable because alignment requirements vary between hardware
architectures and because alignment may be affected by compiler
switches or pragmas. For example, alignment of an 64-bit integer may
be to a 32-bit boundary on a 32-bit machine. Furthermore, aligned
types are only available on architectures with 16, 32, and 64-bit
integer types."
