Hi Peter,

This patch series moves the existing {get,put}_unaligned_[bl]e24() definitions
into include/linux/unaligned/generic.h. This patch series also introduces a function
for sign-extending 24-bit into 32-bit integers and introduces users for all new
functions and macros. Please consider this patch series for kernel version v5.5.

While I applaud the effort (and didn't see anything off in a hurry), I do
wonder why you think I should route these patches.

I don't think I've ever touched the unaligned accessors...

Hi Peter,

I wasn't sure which kernel maintainer to send this patch series to.

Andrew, I think that the include/linux/unaligned/generic.h header file went upstream through your tree in 2008. Can you perhaps recommend me to which kernel maintainer I should send this patch series? An archived version of this patch series is available at
