Here is what I've found for (32-bit) ARM:
- "long double" is 8 bytes long, so it's probably the same as "double"
- the standard alignment for "double" is 8 bytes

And on (32-bit) x86, it looks like the standard alignment for "long double" is 4 bytes:

So I don't think there's anything to change on 32-bit Python builds *if* we only really care about ARM and x86 (which is restrictive, but using "long double" in C extension types is a bit of an exotic issue).
