let me try again
if you write a rectangle of 8xC then there exists a semantic partitioning
of sizeof=8, and things could be aligned accordingly, if not you cannot
you would have to replace r->avail_cache + 5 by + 6 maybe and make other
related changes, its perfectly fine as well if you dont and remove all
calls to fill_rectangle() from your code but fill_rectangle() requires
