I've been looking at the GPG source code, and there is a function in
g10/misc.c named trap_unaligned which only seems to do anything on Linux
Alpha running with glibc 2 or greater.

I notice that is calls this thing called syscall, but I can't find that
defined anywhere in the gpg code, and it does not have a man page.

What does trap_unaligned do?
