SubjectRe: [PATCH] alignment issue with ipchains
   From: NIIBE Yutaka <>
Date: Sat, 09 Sep 2000 11:25:28 +0900

Here's a patch, avoiding useless access.

This seems like a large ugly hack.

Why not make sure in the user tools that the argument is properly
aligned to 4 bytes?

IP-chains works fine on Alpha and Sparc which have the same alignment
restrictions as Super-H for loading 4-byte values. Thus why is SH so
special and require this ugly hack?

I would really like to see specific examples of the failure before I
consider this issue further.
