Subject: [PATCH 11/17] staging: wfx: declare the field 'packet_id' with native byte order

From: Jérôme Pouiller <jerome.pouiller@...abs.com>

The field packet_id is not interpreted by the device. It is only used as
identifier for the device answer. So it is not necessary to declare it
little endian. It fixes some warnings raised by Sparse without
complexifying the code.
