That makes a certain amount of sense as This is Debian Sparc64 which
as I understand it has the kernel compiled in 64-bit mode but not most
of userland. I bet if I compile Postgres in 64-bit mode it'll turn up
as an alignment issue in userland before it even reaches the kernel.
Or maybe not, maybe it's just that __put_user is stricter about
alignment than really necessary.
