i386/relocator: Align stack in grub_relocator64_efi relocator

Unified Extensible Firmware Interface Specification, Version 2.6,
section 2.3.4, x64 Platforms, boot services, says among others:
The stack must be 16-byte aligned. So, do it. Otherwise OS may
boot only by chance as it happens right now.
