[Openmp-dev] Patch for PPC64LE architecture

I think it may be worth making the clean-up that Christopher suggested before we push this, unless there is real urgency here.

This patch is adding a lot of
and similar changes, which would be unnecessary if we went to the other scheme.

So you would explicitly define the architecture in the scripts and so on as “ppc64be” or “ppc64le”, and the you would define
KMP_ARCH_PPC64LE or KMP_ARCH_PPC64BE in the compiler flags and have a


in an appropriate place.

Then all the endian insensitive code would need no changes elsewhere.

I think that could really reduce the number of changes and late rreversions.

It's certainly not critical and a small amount of code churn in the next patch is fine.

This passes my review if someone wants to push it.
