Re: [Libvir] big-endian support for libvirt - introduce GUEST_HANDLE infrastructure ?

  That would be perfect ! Maybe we don't even need to hook in configure
I'm sure endianness info can come from standard headers, then combined
with a processor check that should be sufficient I guess.
Without introducing all the guest handle infrastructure and by just fixing the known xen_v2s3_getdomaininfolistop and xen_v2d5_cpumap the patch became as nice and small as a patch should be ;-) The Libvirt padding is now handled by using gcc's __BIG_ENDIAN__, no configure/header/... needed that way. I think we can assume that at least when libvirt is compiled for ppc gcc is used right? I used one (1) really generic line from our ppc libxc code, this should be no licencing issue (LGPL vs. GPL). Tell me if someone think otherwise and I'll try to change it a bit. Since it is no longer a macro we could pre-calculate the sizes anyway, but the way it is now says clearly "64bit size - used size" for the padding and I like that kind of readability.
