I'd forego the local is_aligned, and also check "compacted" first so that the
uncompacted variant isn't required to evaluated ecx.

And the real reason I am responding... can you post this as a standalone patch?
I stumbled across the "aligned" flag when reading through the SDM for a completely
unrelated reason, and also discovered that the flag has been documented since
2016. While AMX may be the first to "officially" utilize the alignment flag,
the flag itself is architectural and not strictly limited to AMX.
