CONFIG_PACKING: Generic bitfield packing and unpacking

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_PACKING:

Help text

This option provides the packing() helper function, which permits converting bitfields between a CPU-usable representation and a memory representation that can have any combination of these quirks: - Is little endian (bytes are reversed within a 32-bit group) - The least-significant 32-bit word comes first (within a 64-bit group) - The most significant bit of a byte is at its right (bit 0 of a register description is numerically 2^7). Drivers may use these helpers to match the bit indices as described in the data sheets of the peripherals they are in control of.

When in doubt, say N.
