AFAICR, people used to use big-endian on non-NEON ARM cores in the
7TDMI/920 days, and if they still do so, they'll buy those chips.

IMO, throwing a few comments would be enough for now. It's better to
assume little enndian now, with a test case, than to assume big-endian
is possible, without one.
