consistent use of #pragma align would please GCC
Right now, we patch GCC to accept #pragma align after a declaration, as well as before. It's not a big patch, and it makes it more consistent with studio but, given that there's only really about 4 places in which we actually do this, and all of them are trivial to fix, it's easy enough to fix our code.

Actually, from what I see in the gate today, there is only one file actually needing therapy:
The attached patch should deal with that.
(the initial file list to check wasn't even half a page!)

So, I should have updated this bug and didn't.
The reason I never fixed this is that it turned out that while studio accepted a "late" pragma align, it didn't actually do anything with it. My notes say I intended to double check whether we wanted the behaviour the code appeared to specify, or the behaviour the compiler actually gave us.
I appear to have done neither.
I think, on balance, that what Richard has done is the right thing to do. I just wanted to make sure I noted this in the bug (as I should have done at the time).
