UBSan report:

  dbus/dbus/dbus-marshal-basic.c:832:14: runtime error: member access within misaligned address 0x7fdb8dac3a04 for type 'const union DBusBasicValue', which requires 8 byte alignment
  0x7fdb8dac3a04: note: pointer points here

The 'value' parameter to _dbus_header_set_field_basic() is the address of a uint32, which has alignment 4, whereas the union type DBusBasicValue has alignment 8 on 64-bit machines.

Fix attached.
