1. why /proc/cpu/alignment set to 4 from init.rc

Hi Android kernel developers,

I have a OMAP3 Beagleboard [ARMv7], and android works pretty fine with
it. As Android's base chipset is MSM7200 which is ARMv6.
Now coming to the point, I came to know that kernels after 2.6.28-rc6
[Ref. 1], supports "Alignment trap" handling for chipsets after ARMv6.
So if I boot my Beagleboard without android[busybox RFS] it has /proc/
cpu/alignment set to as 2[fixup] as default. i.e. enables unaligned
memory handling.
But if I boot BeagleBoard with Android, Android sets /proc/cpu/
alignment as 4[signal] i.e. set by init.rc (write /proc/cpu/alignment

So can I know why google overwrites it as 4. i.e. signal kill if
alignment trap occurs.
Forgive me, if I misunderstood anything. Your help may clear my doubt.

Does default 2 degrades android performance hence it is set to 4?
