[ Upstream commit 1ca1a4cf59ea343a1a70084fe7cc96f37f3cf5b1 ]
In af3e095a, Erik Jacobsen fixed one type of unaligned access
bug for ia64 by converting a 64-bit write to use put_unaligned().
Unfortunately, since gcc will convert a short memset() to a series
of appropriately-aligned stores, the problem is now visible again
on tilegx, where the memset that zeros out proc_event is converted
to three 64-bit stores, causing an unaligned access panic.
A better fix for the original problem is to ensure that proc_event
is aligned to 8 bytes here. We can do that relatively easily by
arranging to start the struct cn_msg aligned to 8 bytes and then
offset by 4 bytes. Doing so means that the immediately following
proc_event structure is then correctly aligned to 8 bytes.
The result is that the memset() stores are now aligned, and as an
added benefit, we can remove the put_unaligned() calls in the code.
