When comparing a network ordered value with a constant, it
is better to convert the constant at compile time by means

This refactoring may slightly improve the code performance.

After discussing with Simon, we realised that using __constant_htons is useless
since htons is smart enough to be as efficient as his brother __constant*.
Therefore this patch will be re-arranged to use htons only.
It will still remove some ntohs and make use of htons at their place.
