selinux: fix endianness bug in network node address handling
Fix an endianness bug in the handling of network node addresses by SELinux. This yields no change on little endian hardware but fixes the incorrect handling on big endian hardware. The network node addresses are stored in network order in memory by checkpolicy, not in cpu/host order, and thus should not have cpu_to_le32/le32_to_cpu conversions applied upon policy write/read unlike other data in the policy. Bug reported by John Weeks of Sun, who noticed that binary policy files built from the same policy source on x86 and sparc differed and tracked it down to the ipv4 address handling in checkpolicy.
