hexdump: fix for non-aligned buffers

A hexdump with a buf not aligned to the groupsize causes
non-naturally-aligned memory accesses.  This was causing a kernel panic
on the processor BlackFin BF527, when such an unaligned buffer was fed
by the function ubifs_scanned_corruption in fs/ubifs/scan.c .

To fix this, change accesses to the contents of the buffer so they go
through get_unaligned().  This change should be harmless to unaligned-
access-capable architectures, and any performance hit should be anyway
dwarfed by the snprintf() processing time.
