Subject: Re: [PATCH] i40e: don't truncate match_method assignment

From: Jacob Keller <>
Date: Fri,  9 Dec 2016 13:39:21 -0800

> The .match_method field is a u8, so we shouldn't be casting to a u16,
> and because it is only one byte, we do not need to byte swap anything.
> Just assign the value directly. This avoids issues on Big Endian
> architectures which would have byte swapped and then incorrectly
> truncated the value.
