I see.  I think I've fixed this in the latest patch, and have made the
test work like compact-unwind.ll.  PTAL.

Because the host (the binary reading and parsing the section) could be
big-endian?  llvm-objdump built for and running on a BE architecture
should be able to parse an __llvm_faultmaps generated on x86.

That said, supporting BE is definitely not something I require, and if
you think that makes things clearer, I'm happy to just
static_assert(host is LE) and drop the templating.
