ftrace: align __mcount_loc sections
Impact: add alignment option for recordmcount.pl script Align the __mcount_loc sections so that architectures with strict alignment requirements need not worry about performing unaligned accesses. This fixes an issue where I was seeing unaligned accesses, which are not supported on our architecture (the results of an unaligned access are undefined).
