this is a bug. No questions asked.

However you can only exercise this code if you work with Bluetooth Low
Energy and that is not enabled by default since it is not fully finished
yet. CID is only used by Low Energy.

Bluetooth BR/EDR only uses PSM part of the socket address and that has
been endian safe.
