The alignment of "f" is entirely arbitrary.

It could be effected by any number of things, including but not limited to 
where other variables happen to be placed, ABI differences, how aggressively 
the compiler chooses speed over size, exact compiler versions and, if you're 
really unlucky, phase of the moon.
