Hi Sushma,

I think many people have provided really useful tips in
If you still find difficulties fixing this issue, I'll suggest starting
from searching the error message string in the code base and trace the code
from there. It should tell you which line of code prevents GlobalISel from
supporting big endian.
After you (temporarily) lift the restriction (of big endian), you can run
the test program again to see if it crashes any part of GlobalISel due to
big endian.
In other words the whole process is try-and-error: Using the crash/error as
a hint for missing big endian features.
