2005-04-16[PATCH] add Big Endian variants of ioread/iowriteJames Bottomley1-0/+20
In the new io infrastructure, all of our operators are expecting the underlying device to be little endian (because the PCI bus, their main consumer, is LE). However, there are a fair few devices and busses in the world that are actually Big Endian. There's even evidence that some of these BE bus and chip types are attached to LE systems. Thus, there's a need for a BE equivalent of our io{read,write}{16,32} operations. The attached patch adds this as io{read,write}{16,32}be. When it's in, I'll add the first consume (the 53c700 SCSI chip driver).

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
