Some (de facto) ABIs require that it is supported, though. For example,
the POWER string functions avoid unaligned loads and stores for this
reason because the platform has the same issue with device memory. And
yes, GCC will expand memcpy on POWER to something that is incompatible
with device memory. 8-(

If we don't want people to use memcpy, we probably need to provide a
credible alternative.

Thanks,
