 * xvid_malloc
 *
 * This function allocates 'size' bytes (usable by the user) on the heap and
 * takes care of the requested 'alignment'.
 * In order to align the allocated memory block, the xvid_malloc allocates
 * 'size' bytes + 'alignment' bytes. So try to keep alignment very small
 * when allocating small pieces of memory.
 *
 * NB : a block allocated by xvid_malloc _must_ be freed with xvid_free
 *      (the libc free will return an error)
 *
 * Returned value : - NULL on error
 *                  - Pointer to the allocated aligned block
