thank you for reminding. I forgot to add this to the changelog of
a.. Aligned some buffers used in reading and writing to data files. This
allows using unbuffered raw devices as data files in Linux.
I am grateful if someone has time to test this.

I think there's something missing in the changelog. About a month
ago, someone named Christian Jaeger from ETH Zurich asked about
unbuffered raw device support for Linux. You replied immediately with
two sets of patches for 3.23.x (regaring unaligned access) which
apparently fixed the problems, for Mr. Jaeger at least. When I tried
to apply those patches to 4.0.2, I still got operating system error
#22. Thus I decided to wait for 4.0.3.
So I'd like to know about the status of these patches.
