I agree, let's just use malloc for the reasons you said.  PR later today.

    Great, so it was the unaligned "buf".  Great.  As for malloc vs. tricks to
    align the stack-based array, I see little need to avoid malloc() this is a
    test function, not a performance-critical library function.  Exercising
    OPENSSL_malloc() is arguably a feature. :-)
    That said, I have no religion on which approach is taken to align "buf".
    I prefer "malloc" because it unasks the question of which type to use
    in an array or union to ensure the "proper" alignment.  Using any of
    "long" or "long long" is likely good enough, but could prove more fragile
    as the code evolves.
