Yeah,

#define __aligned_u64 __u64 __attribute__((aligned(8)))

Will this cause problems for x86-on-x86_64 emulation? Requiring an
8-byte alignment for 'struct open_how' really isn't that undue of a
burden IMHO. Then again, clone3 is a bit of an outlier since both
perf_event_open and sched_setattr just use __u64s.
