SubjectRE: [PATCH] drivers:staging:wlan-ng:hfa384x_usb: Fixing sparse warnings.
Change the types of capture header, finally we need the header
to be represented in the network byte order as __be..
this is a piece of doc that he mentioned it in the code doc/capturefrm.txt
You can check

3. Byte Order
All multibyte fields of the capture header are in "network" byte
order. The "host to network" and "network to host" functions should
work just fine. All the remaining multibyte fields are ordered
according to their respective standards.

4. Capture Header Format
The following fields make up the AVS capture header:

Offset Name Type
0 version uint32
4 length uint32
8 mactime uint64
16 hosttime uint64
24 phytype uint32
28 channel uint32
32 datarate uint32
36 antenna uint32
40 priority uint32
44 ssi_type uint32
48 ssi_signal int32
52 ssi_noise int32
56 preamble uint32
60 encoding uint32

and the warnings here fixed

If this patch is fine, can I send the rest of fixes.
