As far I know this struct trick is the only way to have gcc check access
to variables with an specific byteorder is done the correct way.  Avi
sguuested that and I also think this checking would be useful.  I could
live without that though if there is an agreement that we'll just stick
with the current, unchecked cpu_to_<order><size> functions.
