Remove them for now. Functions, loops and jumps are always aligned on
4 byte boundaries on Alpha anyway, as instructions are always 32 bit.
The only thing that could be worth trying is increasing the function
alignment to 64 byte (a cache line), but that's dangerous because it
might saturate the icache.
