Yes, thanks. I'd actually got the union layout wrong in my head and not
realised that both member will start at the same address. Ok, so that works.

Ha, oops! Everything going into the command queue is swabbed, so I guess we
need to swab the data again in smp_cond_load_acquire(). I'll leave it with
