Subject[PATCH] kernel: create linux/unaligned.h
From
Date
Add helpers for the following two patterns currently found in the
kernel:

le32_to_cpu(get_unaligned((__le32 *)p));
put_unaligned(cpu_to_le32(x), (__le32 *)p);

Becomes:
le32_to_cpu_unaligned(p);
cpu_to_le32_unaligned(x, p);

There are also some hand-rolled functions implementing this
with byte-shifts that can be replaced. To avoid new indirect
includes of asm/unaligned.h, create linux/unaligned.h to make
it opt in for new code that wants to use these helpers.

This is a rollup of all the previous ones, added kerneldocs and
have CC'd Randy.
