There used to be a configuration option to allow logging which was a
leftover from the times when I implemented the unaligned emulation. I
did never find it useful later on, so I removed that in almost 9 years
ago and nobody missed it since :-)
But I don't mind putting it back, controllable by sysctl if there is any
demand for it.
