You seem to be correct.

With this code:

#ifdef _MSC_VER
typedef __int64 longlong_t;
typedef __attribute__((aligned (8))) long long longlong_t;
GNU C now works the same as with MSVC.

Yes, that works with GNU C as well. Even without my hack above.

It doesn't seem to do any difference in my simple example
either with -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 or 

The only thing that matters is whether -malign-double is set.
