GCC 5 introduced -fsanitize=alignment which is enabled by default by
CONFIG_UBSAN.  This trips a load of wont-fix cases in the ACPI tables and the
hypercall page and stubs writing logic.

It also causes the native Xen boot to crash before the console is set up, for
an as-yet unidentified reason (most likley a wont-fix case earlier on boot).

Disable alignment sanitisation on compilers which would try using it.

v2:
 * Avoid using -fno-sanitize=alignment for ARM
v3:
 * Use CFLAGS_UBSAN, initialised to empty first.
 * Leave a comment explaining why we use -fno-sanitize=alignment

The reason why x86 has a ifeq ($(CONFIG_UBSAN),y) is to avoid yet another
cc-option-add evaluated for every translation uint in the default case.  This
will all go away when we update to a recent version of Kconfig which moves all
the toolchain checks into that phase.
