In any case, there is a predefined function to make this code a little
nicer in <asm/byteorder.h>:

le16_to_cpu(x): Converts the 16-bit little endian value x to
CPU-endian
le16_to_cpup(p): Converts the 16-bit little endian value pointed
to by p to CPU-endian

If you use le16_to_cpup, you need to cast your pointer to __le16 *:

ea.manf_id = le16_to_cpup((__le16 *)&e_addr[4]);

Like Charles, I don't quite see the point of the for loop that fills
e_addr. I guess it did effectively a byteswap, so the original code,
that assumed little-endian, could simply dereference a u16 *. This does
not make a lot of sense anymore, once you use properly (CPU-)endian-
independent code. (Of course, you'll need to replace le16 with be16 if
you drop that loop.)


Thanks,
