Subject: [RFC PATCH] perf: workaround unaligned NEON vector load

The mmap event buffer may end up in a location that violates the
alignment requirements for a NEON vector load, which GCC generates to
load consecutive values from the event structure. Fix this by copying
the event structure into a properly aligned buffer.
