Instruction fetches are always word-aligned.
The peripheral port does not support unaligned transfers (as documented in TRM section 8.6).
For DMA external start address, we can read: "If the External Start Address does not align with
the transaction size that is set in the Control Register, the processor generates a bad parameter
error." So the transfers must be aligned.
