Subject[PATCH, resend] scsi: advansys: fix big-endian builds
Date
Building the advansys driver in a big-endian configuration such as
ARM allmodconfig shows a warning:

drivers/scsi/advansys.c: In function 'adv_build_req':
include/uapi/linux/byteorder/big_endian.h:32:26: warning: large integer implicitly truncated to unsigned type [-Woverflow]
#define __cpu_to_le32(x) ((__force __le32)__swab32((x)))
drivers/scsi/advansys.c:7806:22: note: in expansion of macro 'cpu_to_le32'
scsiqp->sense_len = cpu_to_le32(SCSI_SENSE_BUFFERSIZE);

It turns out that the commit that introduced this used the cpu_to_le32()
incorrectly on an 8-bit field, which results in the sense_len to always
be set to zero, as the SCSI_SENSE_BUFFERSIZE value gets moved to upper
byte of the 32-bit intermediate.

This removes the cpu_to_le32() call to restore the original version.

I found this only by looking at the compiler output and have not done
a full review for possible further endianess bugs in the same driver.

Geert found the same bug and submitted the same patch earlier:

Neither one has been reviewed or accepted so far. Can we get one of the
two merged please?
