SubjectRe: [PATCH] connector: Some fixes for ia64 unaligned access errors
Hi Andrew.

There was some discussion on this patch but I believe we've agreed
on the first version I sent. This was ACKed by Matt Helsley.

Would you consider taking this in to -mm?

I've included my original patch email at the bottom.

Subject: [PATCH] connector: Some fixes for ia64 unaligned access errors

On ia64, the various functions that make up cn_proc.c cause kernel
unaligned access errors.

If you are using these, for example, to get notification about
all tasks forking and exiting, you get multiple unaligned access errors
per process.

Here, we just adjust how the variables are declared and use memcopy to
avoid the error messages.
