I believe that this patch is correct. I am of the opinion though that
endian changes to this driver require prior testing on hardware. There
are some anomalies that I have not figured out yet (for example the
eap header appears to be in network byte order).

I may, however, very well be wrong. It may be perfectly safe to merge
this as is.

Good luck,
Tobin.
