 * the current architecture (e.g., sizeof(double) for RISCy CPUs).  malloc(3)

     * Get access to a contiguous, aligned run of bytes in the stream's buffer.
     * Exactly one successful getBuffer call must occur before a putBuffer call
     * taking the non-null pointer returned by the successful getBuffer.
     *
     * The run of bytes are the next bytes (modulo alignment padding) to read
     * for an input stream, and the next bytes (modulo alignment padding) to
     * store before (eventually) writing buffered data to an output stream.
     * There can be space beyond this run of bytes in the buffer for further
     * accesses before the fill or flush point is reached.
     *
     * @param aLength
     *    Count of contiguous bytes requested at the address A that satisfies
     *    (A & aAlignMask) == 0 in the buffer, starting from the current stream
     *    position, mapped to a buffer address B.  The stream implementation
     *    must pad from B to A by skipping bytes (if input stream) or storing
     *    zero bytes (if output stream).
     *
     * @param aAlignMask
     *    Bit-mask computed by subtracting 1 from the power-of-two alignment
     *    modulus (e.g., 3 or sizeof(uint32_t)-1 for uint32_t alignment).
     *
     * @return
     *    The aligned pointer to aLength bytes in the buffer, or null if the
     *    buffer has no room for aLength bytes starting at the next address A
     *    after the current position that satisfies (A & aAlignMask) == 0.
