You can do something like this:

struct ul { unsigned l __attribute__((packed)); };
unsigned uldl(unsigned *p) { return ((struct ul *) p)->l; }
void ustl(unsigned s, unsigned *p) { ((struct ul *) p->l = l; }

memcpy(d, s, 4) should also generate reasonable code, I would have
thought, but actually, it doesn't... I'll check that...

But these are just ugly kludges, unaligned accesses should simply be
