    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-5759?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12590249#action_12590249

Could you change "BLOCK_BASE_ALIGNMENT" to be
"GC_BLOCK_BODY_ALIGNMENT"?  BASE actually refers to the start of a
block. BODY is the start of the allocatable area.  (And same to

I will commit after you make the modification.

> This issue defines the block alignment to be separated from object alignment. This would
allow to leave the object alignment at 4 and not to waste precious memory, but on other hand
will open the way for alignment of GC blocks to 8 thus increasing the chances that data requiring
8/16 alignment will layout in memory properly.
