Subject: Re: [PATCH v2] net: fec: make driver endian-safe

From: Johannes Berg <>
Date: Sun, 24 Jan 2016 16:52:37 +0100

> The driver treats the device descriptors as CPU-endian, which appears
> to be correct with the default endianness on both ARM (typically LE)
> and PowerPC (typically BE) SoCs, indicating that the hardware block
> is generated differently. Add endianness annotations and byteswaps as
> necessary.
> It's not clear that the ifdef there really is correct and shouldn't
> just be #ifdef CONFIG_ARM, but I also can't test on anything but the
> i.MX6 HummingBoard where this gets it working with a BE kernel.
