As separate patches:
has been in the IA64 port for a while. This fixes the endianness issues

the GPT code.
moves include/asm-ia64/efi.h to include/linux/efi.h similar to the 2.5
patches. This is needed to allow the GPT code to compile on non-IA64
platforms too, necessary for the use of really big disks.

These need to be applied in the above order, as #1 touches efi.h, #2

I've compiled this on x86 against BK-current building in GPT with no
