It isn't clear to me what you mean by "handle unaligned access", since
unaligned access always causes a SIGBUS on SPARC.  To my knowledge,
there is no option to fix up unaligned accesses in the kernel like there
is on Alpha and ARM, so they're always fatal.  I'm pretty sure that
Oracle would have noticed if MySQL died frequently on SPARC.
