-------------------------+--------------------------------------------------
 Here is a first patch to have aligned allocator in numpy: this does not
 give yet a high interface to create arrays with a given alignment, only
 aligned allocators in the array interface.

 The patch:
  * defines aligned allocators
  * Make PyDataMem_* macro to point to the aligned allocator with a default
 alignment (fixed to 16 bytes)
  * Define new macro PyDataAligned_* to align buffer with arbitrary
 alignment
