SubjectAllwinner SID THS calibration data cell representation?
Sorry for resurrecting an old discussion, but since someone posted patches
for H5 and H6, I thought we should resolve this. I'm working on patches to
fix / replace the big-endian issue.

Would it? The 2 32-bit words directly map onto the registers 0x74 / 0x78 in
the THS. As far as the SID is concerned, their is just one consumer for this
data, the thermal sensor. How the thermal sensor uses that data is really not
its concern. And the thermal sensor is really just copying the data from the
e-fuses into its registers. Nothing more.

Furthermore, with the register access interface, the e-fuses are read/write
32 bits at a time. Seems to me it would make more sense to enforce a 32-bit
word size, so cells should be multiples of 32 bits.
