CONFIG_ALIGNMENT_TRAP

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_ALIGNMENT_TRAP has multiple definitions:

found in arch/arm/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_ALIGNMENT_TRAP:

Help text

ARM processors cannot fetch/store information which is not naturally aligned on the bus, i.e., a 4 byte fetch must start at an address divisible by 4. On 32-bit ARM processors, these non-aligned fetch/store instructions will be emulated in software if you say here, which has a severe performance impact. This is necessary for correct operation of some network protocols. With an IP-only configuration it is safe to say N, otherwise say Y.

The configuration item CONFIG_ALIGNMENT_TRAP:

Unicore processors can not fetch/store information which is not naturally aligned on the bus, i.e., a 4 byte fetch must start at an address divisible by 4. On 32-bit Unicore processors, these non-aligned fetch/store instructions will be emulated in software if you say here, which has a severe performance impact. This is necessary for correct operation of some network protocols. With an IP-only configuration it is safe to say N, otherwise say Y.
