To make sure that Wine headers are free of alignment bugs we have
dlls/*/tests/generated.c auto generated by tools/winapi. We just need
to add msvcrt types to tests.dat.

It looks like a lot of the CRT headers in PSDK (including sys/stat.h) set
alignment manually to 8, for example direct.h has the following comment:

#ifdef  _MSC_VER
 * Currently, all MS C compilers for Win32 platforms default to 8 byte
 * alignment.
#pragma pack(push,8)
#endif  /* _MSC_VER */
