To be able to use LSB-stealing (lsb as flag, mask b4 addressing), we
need to know that the alignments of existing data is never odd.  So
add code to check the alignment of pointers in _dyndbg_callsites
section.

It turns out that all these fields point to a variety of odd
alignments in the deeper linkage data.  We will need ALIGN(2) to allow
use of LSB to signal the EOT of differing-tail records.

This means low order bits are unavailable for encoding extra info, as
is done in struct static_key.

Consider the last lines of /proc/dynamic_debug/control, here with
matching fields replaced by '^'.  The pattern here is common head(s)
& differing tail(s).

init/main.c main run_init_process "    %s\012" 1339
^ ^ ^ "  with environment:\012" 1337
^ ^ ^ "    %s\012" 1336
^ ^ ^ "  with arguments:\012" 1334
^ ^ initcall_blacklisted "initcall %s blacklisted\012" 1123
^ ^ initcall_blacklist "blacklisting initcall %s\012" 1084

struct ddebug_callsite fields [mod, file, func, format] are 4-tuples;
each element points at different kinds/sources of linkage data
(&module->name, __FILE__, __FUNC__, format-strings).

callsite-tails are 4,3,2,1-tuples, with matching heads removed.

If we can force ALIGN(2) on all those linkage data sources, then we
can use +1 to mark the Beginning-Of-Tuple (or EOT), and so distinguish
amongst the N-tuples, and reconstruct each record by copying and
changing the previous record.  Each new module block starts with a
4-tuple; the init/main example block above is a 4,1,1,1,2,2-tuple
sequence, using 11/24 of the space.
