With current upstream, using gcc Ubuntu 8.2.0-1ubuntu2~18.04, I get

Any idea what is wrong? I find the test code a bit hard to understand...

Also, I see comments making assumptions that are not true:

    struct test_small_hole {
            size_t one;
            char two;
            /* 3 byte padding hole here. */
            int three;
            unsigned long four;
    };

On m68k (and a few other architectures), integrals of 16-bit and larger
are aligned to a 2-byte address, so the padding may be only a single byte.

Thanks!
