In the User's Guide, page 129, it is written (twice) that the buffer_size and starting_address parameters of the rtems_partition_create directive must be multiples of four.

I noticed that on an ERC32 BSP it is, in fact, multiple of eight.

According to Joel Sherril, the correct would be "a multiple of CPU_ALIGNMENT which is >= sizeof(Chain_Node) where sizeof(Chain_Node) is 8 on a target with 32-bit pointers".
