I appreciate the work put into this. I am glad to have a work around. As far as
the patch is concerned, I don't think I have a enough expertise weigh in and I

Ticket details:

According to cppreference, the function std::aligned_alloc is apart of C++17.
When trying to compile the example code found at that page, the following
compilation error occurs:

src code

 1.  #include <cstdio>
 2.  #include <cstdlib>
 4.  int main()
 5.  {
 6.      int* p1 = static_cast<int*>(std::malloc(10*sizeof *p1));
 7.      std::printf("default-aligned address:   %p\n", static_cast<void*>(p1));
 8.      std::free(p1);
10.      int* p2 = static_cast<int*>(std::aligned_alloc(1024, 1024));
11.      std::printf("1024-byte aligned address: %p\n", static_cast<void*>(p2));
12.      std::free(p2);
13.  }

compilation output

$g++ -std=c++17 alignment.cpp -o main
alignment.cpp: In function 'int main()':
