Try to limit the length of your lines, these long lines make it
difficult to respond to the relevant bit...

> zero number in kernal unaligned acc or the 5407? I presume that my cpuinfo is telling me that whatever causes these unaligned traps is something that

the zero number in kernel unaligned acc means that the kernel code
itself caused 0 unaligned accesses.
The 5407 in user unaligned acc means that user code caused 5407
unaligned accesses since boot. These are from "normal" processes.
