SubjectRe: [RFC PATCH] perf: workaround unaligned NEON vector load

which are?

At a minimum this would be done only for such arch (is that an arch?),
so that the rest of the world doesn't have to eat this extra cost?

What is it that perf_event_mmap_event() is doing to
mmap_event->event_id.header.size that this NEON vector load dislikes?
