I believed that writel/readl was endian agnostic, but It seems that I was wrong.
So I will use _le32.

It is absent from the coccinelle script due to copy/paste error.
And absent from patchset since it is only two possible example that I can test.

If you run the next fixed coccinelle script, you will find some setclrbits.
Since I fear that mask and set could have some common bits sometimes, I prefer to keep separate clrsetbits and setclrbits.
