Alexander Graf - Jan. 21, 2012, 4:18 a.m.
From: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh@kernel.crashing.org>

The virtio config area in PIO space is a bit special. The initial
header is little endian but the rest (device specific) is guest
native endian.

The PIO accessors for PCI on machines that don't have native IO ports
assume that all PIO is little endian, which works fine for everything
except the above.

A complicated way to fix it would be to split the BAR into two memory
regions with different endianess settings, but this isn't practical
to do, besides, the PIO code doesn't honor region endianness anyway
(I have a patch for that too but it isn't necessary at this stage).

So I decided to go for the quick fix instead which consists of
reverting the swap in virtio-pci in selected places, hoping that when
we eventually do a "v2" of the virtio protocols, we sort that out once
and for all using a fixed endian setting for everything.
