I already thought about something like this to cover other bswap 
implementations but found it rather tricky to implement. I'll not be 
able to come up with a patch in the foreseeable future. How about going 
with the current version of the patch until a more generic 
implementation is available and reverting my stuff then? The current 
version shouldn't hurt and helps the kernel and glibc.
