You are right. The current code checks for littel-endian property. If missing,
the CPU endianess is used. Do you prefer to check littlen-endian first, if
missing then big-endian, if both missing then use CPU endianess?

I tested it on 4.0.4 kernel. I see a lot of reference of __LITTLE_ENDIAN__. I
will test the new patch on the latest kernel.
