GVariant: One more FreeBSD fix
FreeBSD's malloc() sometimes returns unaligned memory if you are requesting small sizes. This can get GVariant into trouble. For example, consider the type "mmi" containing the value "just nothing". According to the type signature, the memory containing this should be aligned to a boundary of 4 since it might contain an int. The serialised size of this value is 1 byte, however, and when you ask FreeBSD to allocate memory of that size, it knows you can't put an int into it so it doesn't bother aligning it. This patch modifies the GVariant serialiser to not assert the alignment constraint in the case that the size of the serialised data is smaller than its own alignment requirement.
