Restrict pointer aliasing to allow the compiler to vectorize loop
more aggressively.

With this patch, a 9.6% improvement is observed in throughput for
the packed virtio-net PVP case, and a 2.8% improvement in throughput
for the packed virtio-user PVP case. All performance data are measured
under 0.001% acceptable packet loss with 1 core on both vhost and
virtio side.

For the neon bits, I trust you.

But for the generic part, I'd like to get others opinion.
Added Zhihong and Adrian.
