Subject[PATCH] reiserfs: fix savelinks on bigendian platforms
Hello!

This small patch fixes a savelinks problem on bigendian platforms, where
savelinks were not working at all because of incorrect cpu->disk endianness conversion.
Savelinks are used on reiserfs to remember "truncate" and "unlink" events
so that if crash happens in the middle of truncate/unlink, we do not endup with
lost or half truncated files.

Please pull from bk://namesys.com/bk/reiser3-linux-2.4-savelink-bigendian-fix
