arc and hpcmips cannot run in big endian mode.  Will this impact this
scheme?  mipsel machines cannot generally run mipseb and vice versa.
Some early R4000 processors had CPU support for this, but that was
deleted in many of the newer R5000, Vr41xx and other new families of
MIPS chips don't have this feature.  And NetBSD doesn't support it.
