Subject: [PATCH net 15/15] can: mcp251xfd: mcp251xfd_register_get_dev_id(): fix endianness conversion

In mcp251xfd_register_get_dev_id() the device ID register is read with
handcrafted SPI transfers. As all registers, this register is in
little endian. Further it is not naturally aligned in struct
mcp251xfd_map_buf_nocrc::data. However after the transfer the register
content is converted from big endian to CPU endianness not taking care
of being unaligned.

Fix the conversion by converting from little endian to CPU endianness
taking the unaligned source into account.

Side note: So far the register content is 0x0 on all mcp251xfd
compatible chips, and is only used for an informative printk.
