sukadev@linux.vnet.ibm.com - Sept. 14, 2013, 12:49 a.m.
perf_mem_data_src is an union that is initialized via the ->val field
and accessed via the bitmap fields. For this to work on big endian
platforms, we also need a big-endian represenation of perf_mem_data_src.

 /*
+ * Kernel and userspace check for endianness in incompatible ways.
+ * In user space, <endian.h> defines both __BIG_ENDIAN and __LITTLE_ENDIAN
+ * but sets __BYTE_ORDER to one or the other. So user space uses checks are:
+ *
+ *	#if __BYTE_ORDER == __LITTLE_ENDIAN
+ *
+ * In the kernel, __BYTE_ORDER is undefined, so using the above check doesn't
+ * work. Further, kernel code assumes that exactly one of __BIG_ENDIAN and
+ * __LITTLE_ENDIAN is defined.  So the kernel checks are like:
+ *
+ *	#if defined(__LITTLE_ENDIAN)
+ *
+ * But we can't use that check in user space since __LITTLE_ENDIAN (and
+ * __BIG_ENDIAN) are always defined.
+ *
+ * Since some perf data structures depend on endianness _and_ are shared
+ * between kernel and user, perf needs its own notion of endian macros (at
+ * least until user and kernel endian checks converge).
