Subject: MS-GPEF unclear definition of a field


I am a pfif subcontractor.

Document MS-GPEF section
The efsblob starts with a 32 bit integer called reserved.

The text further describes the field as :
Reserved (4 bytes): Reserved. MUST be set to 0x01 0x00 0x01 0x00.

It is unclear from this description what the byte order should be.
I.e. should this field be
encoded as 0x01000100  or 0x00010001

Please enhance this section so it is clearer on what value this 32 bit
field should have.

In one trace I have of this blob there is a 4 byte integer with the
value 0x00000001  between the Reserved2 field and the first byte of
the SID.
Is this a field that is missing in the documentation?
