Merge tag 'byteswap-for-linus-20121219' of git://git.infradead.org/users/dwmw2/byteswap
Pull preparatory gcc intrisics bswap patch from David Woodhouse: "This single patch is effectively a no-op for now. It enables architectures to opt in to using GCC's __builtin_bswapXX() intrinsics for byteswapping, and if we merge this now then the architecture maintainers can enable it for their arch during the next cycle without dependency issues. It's worth making it a par-arch opt-in, because although in *theory* the compiler should never do worse than hand-coded assembler (and of course it also ought to do a lot better on platforms like Atom and PowerPC which have load-and-swap or store-and-swap instructions), that isn't always the case. See http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=46453 for example." * tag 'byteswap-for-linus-20121219' of git://git.infradead.org/users/dwmw2/byteswap: byteorder: allow arch to opt to use GCC intrinsics for byteswapping
