Subjectwhy is asm-parisc/ioctl.h subtly different from asm-generic/ioctl.h?

just noticed that parisc's ioctl.h file, rather than simply
including asm-generic/ioctl.h, has its own copy whose sole
(meaningful) difference from the generic one is:

$ diff include/{asm-generic,asm-parisc}/ioctl.h
...
41,42c54,55
< #define _IOC_WRITE 1U
< #define _IOC_READ 2U
---
> #define _IOC_WRITE 2U
> #define _IOC_READ 1U
so parisc is identical except that it switches the meaning of the
direction field? is there a reason for this? just curious.
