Subject[PATCH v4 0/8] vhost: support for cross endian guests
From
Date
Hi,

This patchset allows vhost to be used with legacy virtio when guest and host
have a different endianness.

Patch 7 got rewritten according to Cornelia's and Michael's comments. I have
also introduced patch 8 that brings BE vnet headers support to tun/macvtap.

This series is enough to have vhost_net working flawlessly. I could
succesfully reboot guests from ppc64 to ppc64le and vice-versa on ppc64
and ppc64le hosts.

Greg Kurz (8):
virtio: introduce virtio_is_little_endian() helper
tun: add tun_is_little_endian() helper
macvtap: introduce macvtap_is_little_endian() helper
vringh: introduce vringh_is_little_endian() helper
vhost: introduce vhost_is_little_endian() helper
virtio: add explicit big-endian support to memory accessors
vhost: feature to set the vring endianness
macvtap/tun: add VNET_BE flag
