Subject: [PATCH] ioc3: fix incorrect use of htons/ntohs

The protocol type in the ip header struct is a single byte variable. So there
is no need to swap bytes depending on host endianness.

Signed-off-by: Lino Sanfilippo <LinoSanfilippo@....de>

Please note that I could not test this, since I dont have access to the
concerning hardware.
