Those kernels were made without the patch from itoh (kudos to you as well, of

Hmm...  Looks like a unified diff to me...

Hmm...  Ignoring the trailing garbage.

  A quicker and easier work-around might be to change:

        u_int16_t nxti, optr, handle;
        u_int8_t local[QENTRY_LEN];


        u_int8_t local[QENTRY_LEN];
        u_int16_t nxti, optr, handle;

This may just move the problem around (i.e., other different compile options may change the allocation around so the local array is still on an odd word boundry.

  An alternative would be to force the alignment of local:

        u_int8_t local[QENTRY_LEN] __aligned(4);
