I've reproduced this problem on both PPC and m68k. Essentially, we need the 
__constant_cpu_to_le16 et al. macros which I just posted.

Hopefully these will go straight into 2.3, and Alan has promised to at least 
look at them and consider putting them into

It's not the end of the world if they don't get in immediately - we can stick 
the definitions in our own code, surrounded by #ifdef for now. 

Ugly, but effective.
