How often are you going to check this? I would do this only in debug.

Yes, resorting to some bit-fiddling then:

size_t whatIsTheAlignmentOfThisPointer ( const void* p_ ) {

    return ( size_t ) ( ( uintptr_t ) p_ & ( uintptr_t ) -( ( intptr_t ) p_
) );

Yes, it assumes twos-complement, and yes it will therefore possibly fail
[running it] on your average IoT-water-cooker.
