  [#18555] Ensure that PL_hash_seed and PL_hash_state are word aligned

Replace PL_hash_seed and PL_hash_state with PL_hash_seed_w and
PL_hash_state_w, and replace the old vars with defines that cast
their replacements appropriately. This should force linkers to
word align the data. Perl Programming lists via nntp and http.
