Well, I've got an unaligned handler for another architecture here, the tricky
part is to parse the instructions, and not forget about side-effects of ,M

As for how the code would be run, the most likely way would be to call it
in virtual mode with interrupts disabled and pass in a pointer to a pt_regs
(defined in include/asm/ptrace.h) structure.
