Subject: [Boost-users] [traits] missing types aligned at 64 and 128 bytes
From: Václav Šmilauer (eudoxos_at_[hidden])

The header /boost/type_traits/type_with_alignment.hpp specializes the
template type_with_alignment only for 1, 2, 4, 8, 10, 16, 32 bytes.
Unless there is a reason to not do so, I would like to ask for extension
of the alignment to 64 and 128 bytes as well. (In my case, I need it for
the cl_double16 vector type in OpenCL)

As workaround, I am currently using doing the specialization in my code:
> namespace boost {
> namespace align { struct __attribute__((__aligned__(128))) a128 {};}
> template<> class type_with_alignment<128> { public: typedef
> align::a128 type; };
> };
Best regards,
