Why not fill the thing we are passing already with little-endian?  There's
only one caller, after all...

Ugh...
	struct macid_config_eid {__le32 mask; u8 arg;} buf = {
		.mask = cpu_to_le32(mask), .arg = arg
	};

	FillH2CCmd(padapter, MACID_CONFIG_EID, 5, &buf);

Why bother with memcpy/memset/whatnot when all you are trying to do is to
initialize a temporary structure?  And no, it's not going to have any gaps...
