For ARM 32, on 1 hole less:
---------------------------

before (https://pastebin.com/DG1SVpFR):

/* size: 1344, cachelines: 21, members: 123 */
/* sum members: 1304, holes: 5, sum holes: 28 */
/* padding: 12 */
/* bit_padding: 31 bits */

after (https://pastebin.com/ZUMhxGkA):

/* size: 1344, cachelines: 21, members: 124 */
/* sum members: 1305, holes: 5, sum holes: 27 */
/* padding: 12 */
/* bit_padding: 31 bits */


For ARM 64, on 1 hole less:
---------------------------

before (https://pastebin.com/5CdTQWkc):

/* size: 2048, cachelines: 32, members: 120 */
/* sum members: 1972, holes: 7, sum holes: 48 */
/* padding: 28 */
/* bit_padding: 31 bits */

after (https://pastebin.com/32ktb1iV):

/* size: 2048, cachelines: 32, members: 121 */
/* sum members: 1973, holes: 7, sum holes: 47 */
/* padding: 28 */
/* bit_padding: 31 bits */

Looks Ok, but it depends on configuration ...

Yes, would be
