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

It's not necessary and would, indeed, be detrimental to operation since
we'd generate alignment traps on almost every encapsulated protocol (at
several hundred instructions per trap). If we do this, our network
performance will tank.

It doesn't happen for all the normal cases, but it does for
things like IP in appletalk and stuff like that.

Please, implement the trap handlers. Thanks.
