Re: [libvirt] [PATCH] tests: viriscsitest: make it work on big endian archs



Pino Toscano <ptoscano redhat com> [2018-08-01, 03:08PM +0200]:
> viriscsitest tries to ensure the interface IQN used is a specific one,

> the IQN generation involves random bytes, viriscsitest got a fake
> virRandomBytes from the virrandommock helper library, setting static

> always requests 8 random bytes, chopping off the ones not requested by
> the caller -- this meant that on big endian machines it would chop bytes
> from the wrong size of the data buffer, and thus not returning the
