Subject: Re: [PATCH net-next 4/4] 6lowpan: len field is not stored and
 accessed properly

2012/6/11 Tony Cheneau <tony.cheneauh@...esiak.org>:
> Lenght field should be encoded (and accessed) the other way around.
> As it is currently written, it could lead to interroperability issues.

What kind of "interroperability issues" can occur? Please describe it
in details, I can't read your mind. And again, can these problems be
caused by the byte-order mismatch?
