module: explicitly align module_version_attribute structure
We force particular alignment when we generate attribute structures when generation MODULE_VERSION() data and we need to make sure that this alignment is followed when we iterate over these structures, otherwise we may crash on platforms whose natural alignment is not sizeof(void *), such as m68k.
