IIRC it changed between older and more recent ARM, at least we have
separate configuration options for "BE-8" big-endian mode on ARMv6
and above, and "BE-32" on older ones.

Currently we don't support platforms upstream that get configured
as BE-32, but the code is there and I know of people using it.
