asm-generic/unaligned: Unify asm/unaligned.h around struct helper

The get_unaligned()/put_unaligned() helpers are traditionally architecture
specific, with the two main variants being the "access-ok.h" version
that assumes unaligned pointer accesses always work on a particular
architecture, and the "le-struct.h" version that casts the data to a
byte aligned type before dereferencing, for architectures that cannot
always do unaligned accesses in hardware.

Based on the discussion linked below, it appears that the access-ok
version is not realiable on any architecture, but the struct version
probably has no downsides. This series changes the code to use the
same implementation on all architectures, addressing the few exceptions
separately.

Arnd Bergmann (13):
asm-generic: use asm-generic/unaligned.h for most architectures
openrisc: always use unaligned-struct header
sh: remove unaligned access for sh4a
m68k: select CONFIG_HAVE_EFFICIENT_UNALIGNED_ACCESS
powerpc: use linux/unaligned/le_struct.h on LE power7
asm-generic: unaligned: remove byteshift helpers
asm-generic: unaligned always use struct helpers
partitions: msdos: fix one-byte get_unaligned()
apparmor: use get_unaligned() only for multi-byte words
mwifiex: re-fix for unaligned accesses
netpoll: avoid put_unaligned() on single character
asm-generic: uaccess: 1-byte access is always aligned
asm-generic: simplify asm/unaligned.h
