Subject: [PATCH] mv643xx_eth: fix byte order when checksum offload is

From: Byron Bradley <>

The Marvell Orion system on chips have an integrated mv643xx MAC.
On these little endian ARM devices mv643xx will oops when checksum
offload is enabled. Swapping the byte order of the protocol and
checksum solves this problem.

Dale Farnsworth:
Looks good to me and I successfully booted it on a big-endian prpmc2800 board.

Jeff, please pick this up.  My mv643xx queue is otherwise empty.
