Endianness is handled by the callers so this function must leave
the binary blob intact.

It's a header followed by an opaque command. The protocol for queueing a
command says that the first 32-bit half of the header must be written
last, this triggering the command handling in the MC.

As mentioned above, endianness is handled by the caller. This function
takes raw data and must leave it unchanged.

This is a slow interface used in slow paths, so i don't think those
extra barriers will have any performance impact.
