My point is about 16-byte aligned stack variables.
We use those, and with that approach clang can only work either not at all or
inefficiently with those which is why I am raising the question whether we should
add possibly slower and more complex code when we maybe won't be able to make all of
FFmpeg work anyway with that compiler.
