Yeah I know what you mean here. The reason for the above was that the
existing registers are LE, except for the fw_cfg API which is BE. And
since this was the only BE I just added it straight in...
I'm not sure I'm too excited about splitting this into a separate
function although I do see that I'm missing a couple of __be*_to_cpu()
wrappers in this patch. I'll do a resend later.

This still wouldn't handle the case of mixed LE and BE accesses though?
