This looks like a potentially serious bug, omitting stack alignment.
It shouldn't matter as long as crt_arch.h is only used in dlstart.lo
(where the kernel normally gives an aligned stack pointer to begin
with) but I want to remove crt/*/crt1.s within the next couple release
cycles, and then it would matter.
