crypto: memneq - avoid implicit unaligned accesses
The C standard does not support dereferencing pointers that are not aligned with respect to the pointed-to type, and doing so is technically undefined behavior, even if the underlying hardware supports it. This means that conditionally dereferencing such pointers based on whether CONFIG_HAVE_EFFICIENT_UNALIGNED_ACCESS=y is not the right thing to do, and actually results in alignment faults on ARM, which are fixed up on a slow path. Instead, we should use the unaligned accessors in such cases: on architectures that don't care about alignment, they will result in identical codegen whereas, e.g., codegen on ARM will avoid doubleword loads and stores but use ordinary ones, which are able to tolerate misalignment.
