David Major says the alignment issue is still reproducible, so we should restore his patch and try to get this upstream.

We'll need to uplift this aggressively I think.  And likely into ESR 38
Is it as bad as all that? I'm still confused how this one comes and goes.

I don't expect any problems. There are no relevant changes since the patch was last applied.

I only removed the alignment patch on April 29th, so release, beta, and esr38 are unaffected. If you're seeing the crash on those branches, it's something else. :/
