Some versions of ld get the MemSize wrong when there are alignment
constraints specified in the linker script. I'm using ld 2.15 and it appears
to get this right. Which version are you using?

The alignment constraints in minios's x86/64 linker script look pointless,
as they add padding for sections that are not actually used. I can fix that.
