Thanks.  Will follow it from next time.

Sorry. That was our mistake.

To convert the bitmap from big endian to little endian, le_bswap macro in
bswap.h seems useful, which is now undefined.  What do you think about this

This is an example bitmap-traveling code using le_bswap:
      * bitmap-traveling is faster than memory-traveling (for addr...) 
      * especially when most of the memory is not dirty.
     for (i = 0; i < len; i++) {
        if (bitmap_ul[i] != 0) {
            c = le_bswap(bitmap_ul[i], HOST_LONG_BITS);
            while (c > 0) {
                j = ffsl(c) - 1;
                c &= ~(1ul << j);
                page_number = i * HOST_LONG_BITS + j;
                addr1 = page_number * TARGET_PAGE_SIZE;
                addr = offset + addr1;
                ram_addr = cpu_get_physical_page_desc(addr);
