Subject[RFC][PATCH 0/6] Add endian functions to tools/include
Date
From: Matt Fleming <matt.fleming@intel.com>

There's a few host tools in the kernel that are rolling their own
versions of the {get,put}_unaligned_le*() functions. This series
copies the include/linux/unaligned/*_byteshift.h headers to
tools/include for their use.

I don't think it really makes sense for these to be exported to
userspace (i.e. installed by make headers_install) because they're
only used by hostprogs within the kernel, but this series is RFC for a
reason - because I'm not sure where they belong.

Matt Fleming (6):
tools/include: Add byteshift headers for endian access
x86, relocs: Don't open code put_unaligned_le32()
x86, mkpiggy: Don't open code put_unaligned_le32()
x86, boot: Restrict CFLAGS for hostprogs
x86, efi: Fix endian issues and unaligned accesses
USB: ffs-test: Don't duplicate {get,put}_unaligned*() functions
