msdosfs, adofs, etc., should be byte-order independent, anyway. since
the on-disk format is fixed, and in a fixed byte order, that should be
no problem. (indeed, last i looked, the current msdofs code appeared
to have the necessary hooks to work on big-endian machines.)
even if people can't read the floppies, etc., they can still test the
file systems, with things like 'vnd'...
