Just wondering: forgetting about partition schemes, disklabels, etc... if
I create a filesystem on, say, an i386 platform, will I be able to
[theoretically] mount and use the filesystem on another system of
different endian-ness (say, a sparc)? I understand that there are
partitioning and disklabel issues; this is just a theoretical question
regarding the endianness of filesystem data on the disk itself.
Just curious for pure hack value...
