Date
Hi Nadav,

Thank you for the patch.

The purpose of this alignment is to make sure that entity->pads will be
properly aligned. In theory the size of uvc_entity should be taken into
account too, but the structure contains pointers, so its size should already
be properly aligned. This patch thus looks good to me. What made you say it's
a stop-gap measure ?
