Package: nstx
Version: 1.1-beta6-5
Severity: normal
Tags: patch upstream

My laptop is x86 and my router is Big-endian Mips. nstx doesn't work
very well in that case just because of endianness which flips the fields
of the nstxhdr structure around. The 12bit length field makes it even
more tricky.

In the attached patch, I have just increased the id size to 16 to
make it easier to just revert the fields.  I don't know whether nstx
considers cross-version compatibility?  In such case my patch won't be
ok, of course, and send/reception bitmagic will be needed instead.
