I don't think this is super important, but I would have done the following

KMP_ARCH_PPC64 == Things shared for both BE and LE
KMP_ARCH_PPC64BE == BE specific
KMP_ARCH_PPC64LE == LE specific

Currently in the patch I think you're using KMP_ARCH_PPC64 to mean BE, but
in the future if anything is common to both of them will you just use
KMP_ARCH_PPC64 || KMP_ARCH_PPC64LE or what's the plan? (They can't always
be mutually exclusive - can they?)
