Follow-up Comment #3, bug #15915 (project gnu-arch):

This issue was a bug in the Red Hat development glibc.  I think this can be
closed now.

One suggestion from the RH bugzilla:

"BTW, sizeof (long double) is completely wrong thing to check when you check
alignment, you need to check __alignof__ (long double).  On many
architectures, some types have different alignment than their size, e.g. on
sparc32 or s390 long double is 8 byte aligned, but 16 byte in size."
