Oh we had that before. It's, well, unaligned access. We are accessing
words on non-word boundries -- or some such thing. Swish does a bit of
work packing data into odd offsets to save index space .The machine catches
it and fixes the access, but that's a small hit on speed.
Google has lots. I liked this one because of the title -- kind of
matched your comment:
What's up with those "unaligned access" messages? - Linux on Itanium
I wonder how we find those.
Don't you have any regular old machines there at lanl? ;)
