Yes, makes sense. I'll make sure most of the cross-endian changes are
easy to grep.

My poor English again... it seems you understood what I wanted to

Since s.num is unsigned and I assume this won't change, what about
s.num > 1 as suggested by Cornelia ?

Ok. I'll put the defines here so that all the cross-endian stuff
lies in the same hunk. Is it ok for you ?
