Got a small lesson from Ben how to post stuff to the list and here are more
details :)

Every PCI device which uses IO ports (at least vga, e1000, virtio-pci,
rtl8139) is broken in the master branch of QEMU for powerpc-kvm. The
problem is exactly with endianness. For example, setup_vq() from
drivers/virtio/virtio_pci.c (guest kernel) fails on:

iowrite16(msix_vec, vp_dev->ioaddr + VIRTIO_MSI_QUEUE_VECTOR);

as QEMU receives msix_vec==0x100 instead of 0x1 in virtio_ioport_write().

The patch which broke it is b40acf99bef69fa8ab0f9092ff162fde945eec12
"ioport: Switch dispatching to memory core layer".

The patch below fixes this but I am not really sure it is correct. Is it?
