I got around to testing a patch with inverted option, unaligned access is default
and ARC_UNALIGNED_ACCESS_NONE disables it. This option can depend on
$(cc-option,-mno-unaligned-access). The issue however is "broken" gcc silently
ignoring -mno-unaligned-access. So this option can't be auto disable with affected
gcc. So this approach won't work. The only way out is remove the stringent check
and just wait for upstream gcc to be fixed.
