Most, if not all, of these unaligned accesses are in the AtomBIOS. This is
just
initialization code that is not performance critical. So if you can put up
with
the polluted kernel logs, I don't think it is much of a problem.

What about processors that don't support unaligned accesses?
If it's not performance critical then it should be fine to just
do byte-by-byte r/w...
