we've tried to identify all the corner cases where alignment might be a
problem and use some simple C preprocessor macros to fix alignment
anywhere it might be a problem.
I think we (all of us) have decided this isn't really a great approach.
In CVS HEAD there is already some new code that aligns potentially
unaligned accesses, regardless of platform.
The two pieces of code that have been the biggest culprit in this area
are spp_stream4 and spp_frag2.
So, as I understand it (and can convey it to the rest of you), the plan
is to remove the existence of SPARC_TWIDDLE and force alignment where
necessary. I can't say whether or not this will be part of 2.1 but
there's a possibility it will be.
I'll see if I can find out what happened to those HP/UX patches as well.
The original EZ-bake packet oven.
