[Xen-devel] [PATCH v2 10/17] xen: arm64: disable alignment traps

The mem* primitives which I am about to import from Linux in a subsequent
patch rely on the hardware handling misalignment.

The benefits of an optimised memcpy etc outweigh the downsides.

v2: fix typo in commit message and correct comment which refers to alignment
trapping status.
