The destination address is aligned now, but often time the source address
is not in an aligned boundary.

To reduce the unaligned memory access, it reads the data from source in
aligned boundaries, which will cause the data to have an offset, and then
combines the data in the next iteration by fixing offset with shifting
before writing to destination.

The majority of the improving copy speed comes from this shift copy.
