Booting a -current sparc (32bit) kernel crashes when writing a dev_t to
a struct tty:

0xf032f66c is in zstty_attach (../../../../dev/ic/z8530tty.c:394).
389             }
390     #endif
391             aprint_normal("\n");
393             tp = ttymalloc();
394             tp->t_dev = dev;
395             tp->t_oproc = zsstart;
396             tp->t_param = zsparam;
397             tp->t_hwiflow = zshwiflow;
398             tty_attach(tp);

and tp is 0xf41b4c0c - which is only 32bit aligned, but struct tty contains
a 64 bit t_dev, which needs 64 bit alignement.


Just boot a -current sparc kernel (should probably happen on other 32bit
alignement picky archs too)
