Do some of your embedded devices use big endian byte order? It suspect your
issue is fixed by the following commit:

Could you please test, whether the problem is fixed if running one of he trunk
kernels based on 2.6.31-rcX (which already include the patch)?

If it fixes the problem, we can add the patch to a kernel update in a 
stable point update.
