[PATCH] Prevent an implicit int promotion in malloc/tst-alloc_buffer.c


According to ISO C11, section 6.5.3.3 "Unary arithmetic operators", the
result of the ~ operator is the bitwise complement of its (promoted)
operand.
This can lead to a comparison of a char with another integer type.

Tested on powerpc, powerpc64 and powerpc64le.

	* malloc/tst-alloc_buffer.c (test_misaligned): Cast to char
	before comparing with another char.
