[PATCH] char/moxa.c: fix endianess and multiple-card issues
While testing Moxa C218T/PCI on PowerPC 405EP I found that loading firmware using the linux kernel driver fails because calculation of the checksum is not endianess independent in the original code. After I fixed this I found that uploading firmware in a system with multiple cards causes a kernel oops. I had a look in the recent moxa sources and found that they do some kind of locking there. Applying this lock fixed the problem. Alan sayeth: Checksum changes are clearly correct. Other changes is an improvement but not I think enough to handle malicious firmware attacks. That said such an attacker has CAP_SYS_RAWIO anyway so that part is irrelevant except for neatness.
