Subject: [PATCH 3.13 116/149] ibmveth: Fix endian issues with MAC addresses

3.13-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Anton Blanchard <anton@...ba.org>

commit d746ca9561440685edb62614d1bcbbc27ff50e66 upstream.

The code to load a MAC address into a u64 for passing to the
hypervisor via a register is broken on little endian.

Create a helper function called ibmveth_encode_mac_addr
which does the right thing in both big and little endian.

We were storing the MAC address in a long in struct ibmveth_adapter.
It's never used so remove it - we don't need another place in the
driver where we create endian issues with MAC addresses.
