SubjectRe: [PATCH] Small kernel-api addition
Date said:
+ * This macro should be used for accessing values larger in size than single

+ * value from a location not u16-aligned.

I'd suggest s/that may be/that are expected to be/

If it's _expected_, then by all means use {get,put}_unaligned(). If it's
normally going to be aligned, and it _may_ occasionally be otherwise, let
the common case go fast, and let the fixup handle it otherwise.
