I am fine with using __aligned(x) shorthand for kernel-space code.

For UAPI headers, we get it back to __attribute__(aligned(x)) anyway,
and I'd like to minimize the complex text processing.


Since __aligned(x) takes an argument,
this is not feasible to process it by sed.


For example, please see
include/uapi/linux/netfilter_bridge/ebtables.h



If

__attribute__ ((aligned (__alignof__(struct ebt_replace))));

is converted into

__aligned(__alignof__(struct ebt_replace))


it would be difficult to revert it by sed
