If is set, we trap. If it isn't set, then model specific
(though all implementations will
trap for an unaligned access that crosses a 4K boundary).

Linux sets Applications can use prctl(PR_SET_UNALIGN) to choose whether
they want the kernel to silently fix things or to send SIGBUS.

Kernel always noisily (rate limited) fixes up unaligned access.

Your patch does make all the messages go away.
