    And I did the build and they don;t warn here either, so good.

    OK. In that case, I will add this version to my fixes tree in linux-next
    just so that the allmodconfig builds work again. I will remove it when
    it turns up (presumably in the tip tree).

    Just to be clear, it wasn't the unaligned accesses that were causing me a
    problem (PowerPC copes), it was the endian issues.
