Why?  The default alignment of this struct is 4 anyway
(as all its members have a default alignment of 4 ...)

The only situation where a RTL_CRITICAL_SECTION could
conceivably be not aligned to 4 would be if if were 
embedded into a packed struct.  In this case, however,
the aligned attribute wouldn't help either AFAIK.

(Additionally, the gcc'ism will annoy Patrik ;-/)
