[PATCH for-7.0 v2 0/2] change ivshmem endianness to LITTLE_ENDIAN

Posted by Daniel Henrique Barboza 2 weeks ago
Hi,

This small series fixes an issue reported in Gitlab [1] that
affects PowerPC big-endian and little-endian and probably all
other big-endians in the wild that might use 'ivshmem'.

It's not clear to me who is the maintainer/responsible for this device
(MAINTAINERS doesn't seem to have any 'ivhshmem' entries nor someone
that looks upon all hw/misc/* files) so I didn't add any CC in that
regard. 'qemu-ppc' is being copied for awareness since they are the
folks that are most likely being impacted by the bug.

[1] https://gitlab.com/qemu-project/qemu/-/issues/168

Changes in v2:
- fixed 'endianess' occurrences to 'endianness' in patch 1
- fixed spell errors and added Thomas' ack in patch 2
- added a "for-7.0" marker in the subject
- v1 link: https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/qemu-devel/2021-11/msg04716.html
