    Configure check for (need for) header padding · e518cb4c

    Dancing around with various schemes to detect/deal-with compiler padding
    in structs so the 'payload' field ends up double-aligned.  The new
    "large type , large count" work introduced a pointer into the nemisis
    packet, so we have to be a bit more dynamic about how or if we pad out
    the structure.
    - put the members of MPID_nem_pkt_header inside a struct, so subsequent
      payload does not "fall into" compiler-introduced padding
    - use this updated datatype to determine the size, and if we need to pad
      or not.
    - use the result of the configure test to introduce padding, or omit the
      padding from the definition if the amount of padding is '0'
