16 bytes saving in i386 kernel and libc, libc_r
by changing the following line
where ever it appears in
you will get a total of 16 bytes smaller kernel and libc,
libc_r at no cost of speed (I checked with the intel manuals)
on all i386 architecture systems.
(Of course, bswap on 486+ is faster, but since our kernels are
designed to run on 80386 also, and we are usually low on spare
bytes on ramdisk kernels, I thought I could share this.)
