Comment (by slink):

 This issue is most probably not about Solaris, but about sparc.

 Last time I had a look at Varnish on Sparc, I would get bus errors all
 over the place, because sparc has strict memory alignment rules, but
 Varnish hasn't. A major step towards supporting sparc was that WS
 allocations are pointer aligned for some time now, but there probably are
 many other places which would need attention.

 So the brief answer is: To support sparc or other platforms with strict
 memory alignment requirements, we'd need to check all dynamic memory
 allocations for alignment requirements.
