[Bf-committers] Pending patches for iTaSC

Roughly a month ago i had some trouble using iTaSC. The first problem 
(#29048) [1] was a reproducible crash while loading files which used the 
solver. Since Eigen2 was throwing an assertion, it was clear that it is 
an alignment problem. I fixed the problem with an allocator (as proposed 
by Eigen2) which takes care of the alignment. The second problem was a 
mixup in parent relationship for tree IK. Juha Mäki-Kanto provided a 
patch, so that blender builds the relation correctly.

In the meantime i used iTaSC intensively and i did not encounter any 
further problems. Could someone be so keen to submit both patches to 
trunk? I started to create an tutorial which explains iTaSC in more 
detail. But it would be rather useless if Blender crashes, does it wrong 
or i would have to tell the audience that it needs to compile Blender on 
it's own and to apply patch x and y. ;-)
