Subject: [PATCH v3] ubsan: don't handle misaligned address when support
 unaligned access

The ubsan always report Warning just like:

UBSAN: Undefined behaviour in ../include/linux/etherdevice.h:386:9
load of misaligned address ffffffc069ba0482 for type 'long unsigned int'
which requires 8 byte alignment
CPU: 0 PID: 901 Comm: sshd Not tainted 4.xx+ #1
Hardware name: linux,dummy-virt (DT)
Call trace:
[<ffffffc000093600>] dump_backtrace+0x0/0x348
[<ffffffc000093968>] show_stack+0x20/0x30
[<ffffffc001651664>] dump_stack+0x144/0x1b4

[<ffffffc00125d928>] napi_gro_receive+0x30/0x158
[<ffffffc000f4f93c>] virtnet_receive+0xad4/0x1fa8

The reason is that when enable the CONFIG_UBSAN_ALIGNMENT, the ubsan
will report the unaligned access even if the system support it
(CONFIG_HAVE_EFFICIENT_UNALIGNED_ACCESS=y), it will produce a lot
of noise in the log and cause confusion.

This patch will close the detection of unaligned access when
the system support unaligned access.
