I'm aware of having made those changes :)   What I'm not sure about is
whether I experienced problems with both read/writex and in/outx, or
just did the conversion wholesale. 

What I'm considering is whether it would be possible to use the _ns
variants in Amiga drivers -- which is quite likely. Then you could
swap bytes to your heart's content in the other macros for all I care.
