[Gluster-devel] [Gluster-users] Gluster on an ARM system

Pointer casting: armv5tel forces word-alignment of unsigned integers
but glusterfs casts buffer pointers (char *) to integer pointers. 75%
you get a misaligned pointer and when you read from that, well, you
read some incompatible value that will lead to all kinds of crazy.

Bug 397 was one instance of that: <http://bugs.gluster.com/show_bug.cgi?id=397>.
