That was the reason why I had disabled address error software fixing
initially by default like other MIPS systems do. It's just that there
is too much bad software out there - most notably partition table
and CDROM stuff ...

But nowadays I'm more satisfied with the situation. The counter in
/proc/cpuinfo rarely get's bigger than 0.

Btw, wouldn't it be a nice thing for us RISC people if on Intel the kernel
would enable the 486+ alignment exceptions and throw warnings ;-)
