Yeah,

I thought that Mateusz was going to send a
checkpatch patch for ether_addr_equal_unaligned
to make the memcpy thing a bit clearer.

Of course this thing is really only useful for
non x86 systems and then only when the memcpy is
in a fast-path like multicasting so really it's
not very commonly a significant improvement in
the first place.
