    Address needs to be aligned
    
    This value gets dereferenced by python, but without knowing it's true
    type. Thus a SIGBUS is thrown on some architectures, namely arm. This
    can be avoided by copying it to a larger type first, e.g. long, that
    is sufficiently aligned, and thus can be safely dereferenced by
    python.
