    The patch was made by Vikas Chaudhary <vikas.chaudhary@qlogic.com>
    (CC:d) and sent to me by private me-mail. I was first dubious about
    possible endianness problem with qla4xxx private readq and writeq
    implementation but he told they forcefully tested it on PPC64 and it
    worked.

    Last I heard from him on September 6th when he wrote he intended to push
    the patch upstream together with other patches the same week.
