I did, and thus my question: is GCC correct assuming movaps can be
used on a member of an arbitrary struct, if allocating that struct is
not guaranteed to produce the alignment expected by that instruction,
unless the program used aligned_alloc?

Sorry, this sounds like I'm right back to my first question, but
Paul's response seemed to indicate that the required alignment is
guaranteed, and you now seem to say it isn't.  I'm probably missing
