the more-commonly-failing disjunct first.

Lisp-aligned pointer. Code that needs to allocate C heap memory

On typical modern platforms these functions' loops do not iterate.
On now-rare (and perhaps nonexistent) platforms, the loops in
theory could repeat forever. If an infinite loop is possible on a
platform, a build would surely loop and the builder can then send
us a bug report. Adding a counter to try to detect any such loop
would complicate the code (and possibly introduce bugs, in code
that's never really exercised) for little benefit. */
