Method name and signature might be different, I tend to ask to add a
comment, simple /* BREC */ at the end of line would suffice.

Definitely. We don't want homegrown copies of library APIs.

I didn't get it. If there is a strong endianess expected the parameter
should be __le16 or __be16, moreover it seems it missed the const
qualifier. Any preparatory stuff should be done in the
asus_wmi_ec_make_block_read_query() which prepares the input buffer,
doesn't it?

So, replace homegwon library APIs.

Read my comment again, please.
