OK.  In that case, I will add this version to my fixes tree in linux-next
just so that the allmodconfig builds work again.  I will remove it when
it turns up (presumably in the tip tree).

Just to be clear, it wasn't the unaligned accesses that were causing me a
problem (PowerPC copes), it was the endian issues.
