[SCSI] megaraid_{mm,mbox}: a fix on "kernel unaligned access address" issue
There was an issue in the data structure defined by megaraid driver casuing "kernel unaligned access.." messages to be displayed during IOCTL on IA64 platform. The issue has been reported/fixed by Sakurai Hiroomi [sakurai_hiro@soft.fujitsu.com]. Signed-Off By: Seokmann Ju <seokmann.ju@lsil.com> Signed-off-by: James Bottomley <James.Bottomley@SteelEye.com>

Fix: MegaRAID F/W has fixed the problem and being process of release,
soon. Meanwhile, driver will filter out the request.
+3. One of member in the data structure of the driver leads unaligne
+ issue on 64-bit platform.
+ Customer reporeted "kernel unaligned access addrss" issue when
+ application communicates with MegaRAID HBA driver.
+ Root Cause: in uioc_t structure, one of member had misaligned and it
+ led system to display the error message.
+ Fix: A patch submitted to community from following folk.
