The problem was triggered by qemu-iotests case 055. It failed when it
was comparing the compressed vmdk image with original test.img.

The cause is that buf_len in vmdk_write_extent wasn't converted to
little-endian before it was stored to disk. But later vmdk_read_extent
read it and converted it from little-endian to cpu endian.
If the cpu is big-endian like s390, the problem will happen and
the data length read by vmdk_read_extent will become invalid!
The fix is to add the conversion in vmdk_write_extent, meanwhile,
repair the endianness problem of lba field which shall also be converted
to little-endian before storing to disk.
