Subject: Re: [PATCH V3.18] rtlwifi: Fix possible unaligned array in
 ether_addr_copy()

From: Larry Finger <Larry.Finger@...inger.net>
Date: Wed,  8 Oct 2014 12:44:55 -0500

> Two macros used to copy BSSID information use ether_addr_copy(), thus
> the arrays must be 2-byte aligned. In one case, the array could become
> unaligned if the struct containing it were changed. Use the __unaligned(2)
> attribute to retain the necessary alignment. In addition, the magic number
> used to specify the size of the array is replaced by ETH_ALEN.
