Really? Here is an example of another open-coded version of
put_unaligned_be48() from arch/mips/cavium-octeon/octeon-platform.c:

	new_mac[0] = (mac >> 40) & 0xff;
	new_mac[1] = (mac >> 32) & 0xff;
	new_mac[2] = (mac >> 24) & 0xff;
	new_mac[3] = (mac >> 16) & 0xff;
	new_mac[4] = (mac >> 8) & 0xff;
	new_mac[5] = mac & 0xff;
