Cool. Is this stuff already in gcc-current, or are you going to commit
it to gcc-current soon'ish?

I can take a look at this -- the question is:
* Do we want the kernel to optionally provide fixups for
unaligned loads on such systems?
* Do we want the kernel to be verbose about the unaligned
The Alpha port has knobs for both of these things, for example.
