Not that I'm aware of.
We did not test it on any big endian system yet so the problem never became visible.

In any case it would be really nice to see this patchset to be applied so people have a working,but maybe not perfect, spi tpm on the common little endian platforms.
When do you think you can merge and pull-request them?
