[Bug ld/22903] New: [AArch64] Insufficient veneer stub alignment

Hi Guys,

  
  PR 22903 has just been filed concerning a potential problem with misaligned AArch64 long branch stubs:

> https://sourceware.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=22903

  Attached is a patch that can fix the problem, but it does have the side effect of potentially
  increasing the size of AArch64 binaries, in the cases where a long branch stub needs to be
  aligned to an 8-byte boundary.  Is this going to be a problem for anyone ?

Cheers
  Nick
