SubjectRe: New struct sock_common breaks parisc 64 bit compiles with a misalignment
   From: James Bottomley <>

Unaligned access traps are pretty expensive on the parisc, so we
don't actually handle them when they're from the kernel, we panic
instead (and expect the problem code to be fixed).

Welcome to the real world, unaligned accesses are perfectly
legal in the networking stack.

They are in fact guarenteed to occur when certain protocols
are encapsulated in others.

Please add an unaligned trap handler for parisc64, thanks.
