Subject: RE: [PATCH v2 6/8] crypto: caam - handle core endianness != caam
 endianness

> There are SoCs like LS1043A where CAAM endianness (BE) does not match
> the default endianness of the core (LE).
> Moreover, there are requirements for the driver to handle cases like
> CPU_BIG_ENDIAN=y on ARM-based SoCs.
> This requires for a complete rewrite of the I/O accessors.
> 
> PPC-specific accessors - {in,out}_{le,be}XX - are replaced with
> generic ones - io{read,write}[be]XX.
> 
> Endianness is detected dynamically (at runtime) to allow for
> multiplatform kernels, for e.g. running the same kernel image
> on LS1043A (BE CAAM) and LS2080A (LE CAAM) armv8-based SoCs.
> 
> While here: debugfs entries need to take into consideration the
> endianness of the core when displaying data. Add the necessary
> glue code so the entries remain the same, but they are properly
> read, regardless of the core and/or SEC endianness.
> 
> Note: pdb.h fixes only what is currently being used (IPsec).
