I hadn't noticed in the previous version but I see now that hotpatch
& assume_aligned is only available since sparse 0.5.1 which is only
13 months old. It would be great if everyone use a recent version
but I fear that a lot of people still use something less recent.
v0.5.0 should be OK, though, it's more than 5 years old.

Sorry for not having noticed this earlier.
