If I'm not mistaken, "unaligned trap" means someone is doing something
void foo(char *x)
int *c = (int *)x;
and the char* passed in is not necessarily 32-bit-aligned. Some CPUs
(like the Alpha) care deeply about this sort of thing, others (like the
Intel) don't really, except for some loss of efficiency.
Is that correct? Can someone definitively support or refute my
