  Log Message:
  ARMv8 simulator: implement 16-byte alignment checking (!!).  If the SA0 bit is
set in SCTLR_EL0 (and this is the case on e.g. Manjaro ARMv8) then any attempt
to load or store throguh the sp if the sp is aligned on other than a 16 byte
boundary will produce an illegal instruction fault.
