RFR(S): 8220348: [ntintel] asserts about copying unalinged array

Hi Martin,

this makes sense. This is the right way to force alignment. I do not like
the platform code in the shared file but do not think this is a big deal.

+#if defined (_WIN32) && defined (_MSC_VER)

Why do you think we need _MSC_VER too? Is OpenJDK on Windows even buildable
with anything other than VC++?

Cheers, Thomas
