MPS issue job003512

TitleCan't configure MVT alignment
Assigned userGareth Rees
DescriptionThe MVT pool does not have configurable alignment.
AnalysisRB [1]: "In poolmv2.c, I note that we create the CBS with MPS_PF_ALIGN. Perhaps a note here and a job ("nice") that we should consider generalising, unless there's a good reason for the restriction, in which case it should be explained here. In particular, this seems at odds with "The pool class must support aligned allocations to client-specified alignments." The discrepancy needs some kind of explanation."

There doesn't seem to be any good reason for the restriction: CBS and Freelist have configurable alignment, and MVFF work well if you switch alignment.
