That doesn't fix this structure, as I understand it. The total size of the elements is 300 bytes, but the whole struct must be aligned to 8 bytes on 64 byte architectures, but only needs alignment 4 on the i386 ABI.
Consider this much simpler structure:
On the i386 ABI, sizeof(struct broken) is 12. On the x86-64 ABI, it's 16.
