Although U-boot has a fuse like interface to support different filesystems, the unaligned read is in fact completely handled by the underlying fses.
And unfortunately, some filesystems doesn't even support unaligned read, and even for the supported fs, they have to do extra hack to support unaligned read.
Thus this small project will make U-boot to have a generic handling for unaligned read for all supported fses.
Goal for this Hackweek
Provide a patchset to make U-boot to handle unaligned read in a generic way.
Some experience in FUSE/U-boot and any fs utilized by U-boot.
This project is one of its kind!
