> The Sun Studio C/C++ compiler has the -xmemalign option, which can be used to adjust the behavior of the UltraSPARC CPU when there are unaligned memory addresses that can be determined at compile time. The -xmemalign option causes the compiler to generate additional load/store instructions for unaligned memory access. However, the -xmemalign option cannot handle unaligned memory access during runtime. If unaligned memory access happens during runtime, the developer needs to change the source code.

It would still help a lot if you could get a stack trace to find out
where the unaligned memory access happens.  We try to only do aligned
memory access in our code; if there's somewhere where we're doing
unaligned access, I want to find it and fix it.
