OK... so now we have a tools baseline problem. It isn't that we
couldn't open-code these functions, but of course we'd also like to not
*have* to do so... but also we don't want to have the kernel build rely
on autoconf ;)
So we have a few options, here:
1. We could use the unaligned macros defined in
2. Open-code it.
3. Define a baseline which includes these kinds of functions.
I guess I would be leaning toward #1, but would also wonder if that also
means we should add -I$(srctree)/tools/include to the global settings
... we are *already* adding it to HOSTCFLAGS_sortextable.o.
