It is tested, it works. But byte order fields in the structures for fdir are not
consist, few are in host endian. It will make user confused, so this patch
is to make all fields in the same byte order.

OK. Will add in later version.

Ok. Thanks for point.

Will fix this in later version.

OK. Will improve this.
