Ok, here's it. (We're also getting rid of the double-obtain statistics
that was mentioned in the initial submission.)


Please apply this one, or pull, or cherry-pick from

net: fix unaligned access in IFLA_STATS64

Tony Luck observes that the original IFLA_STATS64 submission causes
unaligned accesses. This is because nla_data() returns a pointer to a
memory region that is only aligned to 32 bits. Do some memcpying to
workaround this.
