Heh, back when Casey was first drafting this code I mentioned the same issue
regarding byte ordering but Casey assured me that everything was correct. I
didn't have a Smack test system at the time so I couldn't verify the behavior.
I'm glad you had a chance to test it, needless to say you should fix that when
you submit your patch.
