The netmask configured in firmware is not respected on ppc64 (big endian). When 255.255.252.0 is set as netmask in firmware, the following is the value of bootpath string in grub_ieee1275_parse_bootpath().


/vdevice/l-lan@30000002:speed=auto,duplex=auto,192.168.88.10,,192.168.89.113,192.168.88.1,5,5,255.255.252.0,512

The netmask in this bootpath is no problem, since it's a value specified in firmware. But, The value of 'subnet_mask.ipv4' was set with 0xfffffc00, and __builtin_ctz (~grub_le_to_cpu32 (subnet_mask.ipv4)) returned 16 (not 22).
As a result, 16 was used for netmask wrongly.

1111 1111 1111 1111 1111 1100 0000 0000 # subnet_mask.ipv4 (=0xfffffc00)
0000 0000 1111 1100 1111 1111 1111 1111 # grub_le_to_cpu32 (subnet_mask.ipv4) 1111 1111 0000 0011 0000 0000 0000 0000 # ~grub_le_to_cpu32 (subnet_mask.ipv4)

And, the count of zero with __builtin_ctz can be 16.
This patch changes it as below.

1111 1111 1111 1111 1111 1100 0000 0000 # subnet_mask.ipv4 (=0xfffffc00)
0000 0000 1111 1100 1111 1111 1111 1111 # grub_le_to_cpu32 (subnet_mask.ipv4) 1111 1111 1111 1111 1111 1100 0000 0000 # grub_swap_bytes32(grub_le_to_cpu32 (subnet_mask.ipv4)) 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0011 1111 1111 # ~grub_swap_bytes32(grub_le_to_cpu32 (subnet_mask.ipv4))

The count of zero with __builtin_clz can be 22. (clz counts the number of one bits preceding the most significant zero bit)
