Subject[PATCH 2/2] crypto: ccp - Mark driver as little-endian only
The driver causes a warning when built as big-endian:

drivers/crypto/ccp/ccp-dev-v5.c: In function 'ccp5_perform_des3':
include/uapi/linux/byteorder/big_endian.h:32:26: error: large integer implicitly truncated to unsigned type [-Werror=overflow]
#define __cpu_to_le32(x) ((__force __le32)__swab32((x)))
include/linux/byteorder/generic.h:87:21: note: in expansion of macro '__cpu_to_le32'
#define cpu_to_le32 __cpu_to_le32
drivers/crypto/ccp/ccp-dev-v5.c:436:28: note: in expansion of macro 'cpu_to_le32'
CCP5_CMD_KEY_MEM(&desc) = cpu_to_le32(CCP_MEMTYPE_SB);

The warning is correct, doing a 32-bit byte swap on a value that gets
assigned into a bit field cannot work, since we would only write zeroes
in this case, regardless of the input.

In fact, the use of bit fields in hardware defined data structures is
not portable to start with, so until all these bit fields get replaced
by something else, the driver cannot work on big-endian machines, and
I'm adding an annotation here to prevent it from being selected.

The CCPv3 code seems to not suffer from this problem, only v5 uses
