So, I'm reading that on PPC64 there is no effect, and on the "lesser"
machine Tomas tested on, there is no effect either; this patch only
seems to benefit Alexander's 72 core x86_64 machine.

It seems to me that Andres comments here were largely ignored:
He was suggesting to increase the struct size to 16 bytes rather than
going all the way up to 128.  Did anybody test this?

Re the coding of the padding computation, seems it'd be better to use
our standard "offsetof(last-struct-member) + sizeof(last-struct-member)"
rather than adding each of the members' sizes individually.
