All applied to net-next, nice work.

Please make the following fix for me.  The option recovery code will
result in unaligned accesses, for example you'll do a byte aligned
get_user() for the u16 MSS object in many cases, and this will trap
and cpus such as sparc.

Either add a padding facility or pass more structured data into the
socket option.

Thanks.
