[PATCH 4.18 019/197] tipc: fix the big/little endian issue in tipc_dest




4.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Haiqing Bai <Haiqing.Bai@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 30935198b7d0be12b1c45c328b66a7fdefb16256 ]

In function tipc_dest_push, the 32bit variables 'node' and 'port'
are stored separately in uppper and lower part of 64bit 'value'.
Then this value is assigned to dst->value which is a union like:
union
{
  struct {
    u32 port;
    u32 node;
  };
  u64 value;
}
This works on little-endian machines like x86 but fails on big-endian
machines.

The fix remove the 'value' stack parameter and even the 'value'
member of the union in tipc_dest, assign the 'node' and 'port' member
directly with the input parameter to avoid the endian issue.
