Subject: [PATCH v2] raid6/test/test.c: bug fix: Specify aligned(alignment) 
attributes to the char arrays

Specifying the aligned attributes to the char recovi[PAGE_SIZE] and char 
recovi[PAGE_SIZE] arrays, so that all malloc memory is page boundary aligned.

Without these alignment attributes, the test causes a segfault in userspace 
when the NDISKS are changed to 4 from 16.
