"support for unaligned load ops was added" probably means that K8L handles muvups/movupd/movdqu via DirectPath instead of VectorPath (a.k.a. microcode). That's was always a case on P6/PM. So in that regard AMD finally catching up with 8 years old Intel product. That's fine but hardly means that we shouldn't align.
