Uh oh.  We really need a kernel unaligned trap handler.  Some of
the network protocols rely on that being handled right (yes, i know.
it sucks.)  I was about to say `I really don't think this applies to
IP or BOOTP/IP', when I remembered...


There was a bug in 2.3.41, looks like it didn't get fixed in .42, that
caused things to get unaligned once in a while.  Doh!  Anyone want to
volunteer to write an unaligned trap handler...?
