I used this because VIRTIO 1.1 spec says: 
"The device configuration space uses the little-endian format for multi-byte fields. "

and __le64 looks ok to me. Also, its used in other driver config as welle.g virtio-vsock

I used __virtio32 for data fields for guest and host supporting different endianess.
