From: Xuelin Shi <xuelin.shi@freescale.com>

This module uses type conversion between struct and int.
Also truncation and comparison is used with this int.
It is not safe for different endian arch.

Add ifdef for big endian struct to fix this issue.

Since endianness only refers to the order of bytes within a word, do the bitfields
within the uint8_t really need to be swapped around too?

Hi Bruce,

Yes, it needs to swap the fields. The bit field is first identified as the uint8_t and then packed.

Thanks,
Shi xuelin

Am I right in thinking that this patch set supercedes that for
"lpm: use field access instead of type conversion" http://dpdk.org/dev/patchwork/patch/3132/ ?

Hi Bruce,

Yes, the patch http://dpdk.org/dev/patchwork/patch/3132/ should be abandoned.

Get an error compiling this up (using clang on FreeBSD).

  CC rte_lpm.o
  In file included from /usr/home/bruce/dpdk.org/lib/librte_lpm/rte_lpm.c:57:
  /usr/home/bruce/dpdk.org/lib/librte_lpm/rte_lpm.h:99:5: fatal error: 'RTE_BYTE_ORDER' is not defined, evaluates to 0 [-Wundef]
#if RTE_BYTE_ORDER == RTE_LITTLE_ENDIAN
      ^
      1 error generated.

Adding "#include <rte_byteorder.h>" should fix the issue.

Existing unit tests on IA (little endian) pass fine there-after, but I think for
this patch it would be good to have an ack from someone who can validate on
a big endian system, since this is what this patch is meant to enable.

"superseded" would be more appropriate here.
Generally, "not applicable" should be used for emails which are not real
patches or really wrongly formatted.
