Subject: [for-linus][PATCH 8/9] Revert: "ring-buffer: Remove HAVE_64BIT_ALIGNED_ACCESS"

From: "Steven Rostedt (VMware)" <rostedt@...dmis.org>

It was believed that metag was the only architecture that required the ring
buffer to keep 8 byte words aligned on 8 byte architectures, and with its
removal, it was assumed that the ring buffer code did not need to handle
this case. It appears that sparc64 also requires this.

The following was reported on a sparc64 boot up:

   kernel: futex hash table entries: 65536 (order: 9, 4194304 bytes, linear)
   kernel: Running postponed tracer tests:
   kernel: Testing tracer function:
   kernel: Kernel unaligned access at TPC[552a20] trace_function+0x40/0x140
   kernel: Kernel unaligned access at TPC[552a24] trace_function+0x44/0x140
   kernel: Kernel unaligned access at TPC[552a20] trace_function+0x40/0x140
   kernel: Kernel unaligned access at TPC[552a24] trace_function+0x44/0x140
   kernel: Kernel unaligned access at TPC[552a20] trace_function+0x40/0x140
   kernel: PASSED

Need to put back the 64BIT aligned code for the ring buffer.
