Calls to rte_memcpy_aligned could result in unaligned loads/stores for
1 < n < 16. This is undefined behavior according to the C standard,
and it gets flagged by the clang undefined behavior sanitizer.

rte_memcpy_aligned is called with aligned src and dst addresses. When
n is odd, the code would copy a single byte first, increment src/dst,
then, depending on the value of n, would cast src/dst to a qword, dword
or word pointer. This results in an unaligned load/store. Reversing the
order of the casts & copies (ie. copying a qword first, dword second,
etc.) fixes the issue.

Hi,

This patch can be abandoned. As indicated in another thread
(http://mails.dpdk.org/archives/dev/2022-February/234889.html), there
is no requirement/desire to make this change.

Thanks.
