I would expect there are more of these.

Perhaps this define in include/uapi/linux/swab.h:

#define __swab16(x) \
(__builtin_constant_p((__u16)(x)) ? \
___constant_swab16(x) : \
__fswab16(x))

should be

#define __swab16(x) \
(__builtin_c
onstant_p((__u16)(x)) ? \
___constant_swab16((__u16)(x)) :
\
__fswab16((__u16)(x)))
