I have just verified, and you are right :

include/asm-m68knommu/unaligned.h was wrong in 2.6.2

But I did not have to fix it locally.

I remember the ppp driver kernel doing by error unaligned accesses
(of course without using unaligned macros) and crashing my kernel.
I fixed the error in the ppp driver and the fix went into the
mainline kernel.

I am not aware that unaligned macros were used in the parts of the
kernel I used on this board. Just to be sure I made a quick list :

$ find -name \*.o | sed -e 's/\.o$/.c/' | xargs grep t_unaligned 2> /dev/null
./fs/partitions/msdos.c:#define SYS_IND(p) (get_unaligned(&p->sys_ind))
./fs/partitions/msdos.c: get_unaligned(&p->nr_sects); \
./fs/partitions/msdos.c: get_unaligned(&p->start_sect); \
./drivers/net/slhc.c: put_unaligned(ip_fast_csum(icp, ip->ihl),

I am 100% sure I did not use msdos partitions on that board. I don't
know why msdos.c was compiled in. For the slhc case, I surmise that it
was not used because its usage depends on some option we did not use.

Best regards
