This looks good to me. I wonder what the result is for CPUs
that /do/ support unaligned accesses. Normally put_unaligned()
should fall back to a simple store in that case, but I'm not
sure it can fold the two stores back into one and skip the
alignment check. Probably not worth overoptimizing for that
case (the MMIO access latency should be much higher than
anything you could gain here), but I'm still curious about
how well our get/put_unaligned macros work.
