[rabbitmq-discuss] rabbitmq-c corrupt content frame from ARM client

>From the wireshark info, it sounds like the rabbitmq-c client is sending
completely the wrong data. It should send a Connection.Start-Ok method and
not a content-header frame (e.g., the frame type should be 1 first few
bytes of that frame should be: 0x01 {Method Frame}, 0x00, 0x00 {Channel 0},
0x00, 0x00 0xXX, 0xXX {Big Endian length of frame in bytes} ). I'm also not
sure what to to think about the sent header length: that should be 8 bytes
or 64 bits, I suspect thats a wireshark oddity though.

The octets reported by the RabbitMQ server error message don't really make
sense to me: I'm having trouble correlating what is reported vs what I
think should be, even if the system is doing an incorrect byteswap. I'm not
100% sure we're clear of any unaligned access issues, but I would guess
we'd be hitting bus-errors in that case, though I'm not quite sure

Would you be willing to send me a filtered down wireshark log of the failed
