t_ubsan fails with

load_invalid_value_bool: [0.220474s] Failed: /home/netbsd-current/src/tests/lib/libc/misc/t_ubsan.c:99: buffer != 0 not met

The reason is that ubsan doesn't see an error, because the test is bogus.

static void
        volatile int a = atoi("10");
        volatile bool b = *(REINTERPRET_CAST(volatile bool *, &a));

        raise(b ? SIGSEGV : SIGBUS);

This reads the first byte of an integer variable and assigns it
to a bool variable. For bigendian platforms that first byte is

Run atf tests on a big-endian arch.

Use a test value that has only invalid bytes. The same also helps
the load_invalid_value_enum test. The test value must use at least
as many bytes as a bool (or enum).
