   When reading a random packet in memory. GetBits() tries its best to
keep aligned, but when it needs to read bits overlapping two packets, it
can't be sure that the next packet will have the same alignment as the
current one, so a call to UnalignedGetBits() is necessary to avoid bus
errors or unaligned traps.
