All Freescale,

Not sure if this is the place to post this, but I have run across what I
consider to be a possible type error in the immap_qe.h file, for the
asm/powerpc branch.

In the file immap_qe.h

/* SI Routing Tables */
struct sir {
	u8  tx[0x400];
	u8  rx[0x400];
	u8  res0[0x800];

Shouldn't these types be defined as __be16 ?

According to the Freescale manual this is a 16 bit field, not an 8-bit

Spent an hour trying to figure out why I couldn't fill this field out with
upper 8 bits last night.
