Thanks for this patch Nathan. Thinking more about this...the integer
passed to __attribute__((aligned(x))) should be in terms of bytes. 64
bytes seems kind of high. Maybe they meant 64 *bits* thus 8 *bytes*
which already the default alignment of the struct:
https://godbolt.org/z/7vW6E3

In which case, the correct fix is to remove the `__aligned(64);`
outright. Since that doesn't change anything (thanks to clang's
helpful -Wignored-attributes), such a patch would be "No Functional
Change" (does not change the status quo). Still, it might be good for
the maintainer to remark if 64 *byte* alignment was intentional (I
would think not, but I don't have the datasheet for this piece of
hardware in front of me; never say never) before sending such a patch.

If the 64 *byte* (512 bit) alignment was intentional (again, which I
doubt), then this patch is good to go, but that would then be a
functional change and should be tested by someone with hardware.
