hexdump: fix for non-aligned buffers
A hexdump with a buf not aligned to the groupsize causes non-naturally-aligned memory accesses. This was causing a kernel panic on the processor BlackFin BF527, when such an unaligned buffer was fed by the function ubifs_scanned_corruption in fs/ubifs/scan.c . To fix this, change accesses to the contents of the buffer so they go through get_unaligned(). This change should be harmless to unaligned- access-capable architectures, and any performance hit should be anyway dwarfed by the snprintf() processing time.
