[patch] enic: fix an endian bug in enic_probe()

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

"num_vfs" is a u32 but we only use the high 16 bits and the low 16bits
are left as zero.  That isn't a problem for little endian systems but it
will break on big endian ones.
