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.
