Good point.. It seems that indeed not much care has been taken about
endianess here.. Probably we need also some le16_to_cpu() and
firends..

Maybe another separate patch can be made to take care about endianess later on?

BTW Also, the  ____cacheline_aligned is a bit scaring :) I don't know
what is that for...
