Re: 64B66B bit ordering


Your suggestion works, except for the bit ordering of the
type byte. The type byte should also be indicated bit 
reversed to be consistent with the rest of the fields.
type byte "0x1e" -> 01111000. (I think you had it bit
reversed within each nibble wihout exchanging the nibbles).
