I have a USB drive I move between little-endian and big-endian systems (evbarm and macppc), and I started seeing occasional panics:

panic: kernel diagnostic assertion "oldsize != VSIZENOTSET || pgend > oldsize" failed: file "/src/src/sys/uvm/uvm_vnode.c", line 355

Since the byteswapped FS is only one of many, it took a number of these panics and much discussion with others before I realized it was probably happening on the byteswapped file systems.  Code inspection also yielded that in the above, "pgend" was negative.  I added the following local patch to get a little more information:

and started seeing panics like this more frequently:

"newsize" varies, but clearly looks like it's been the victim of byteswapping (or lack thereof) at some point.
Mount a bigendian FFSv2 on a littleendian system and do cvs updates, pkgsrc bulk building and other fs-intensive activities thereon.

None given.
