Description

I am testing a low-level patch for Ruby 3 that inside gc.c replaces:

TRY_WITH_GC(size, mem = malloc(size));

with:

TRY_WITH_GC(size, mem = aligned_alloc(16,size));

This should allow me to control that Fiddle returns pointers quad-words aligned.

Is it possible to introduce a configure parameter to control this kind of setting?

Refer to issue opened on Fiddle.

Kind regards,

Andrea Ribuoli
