eBPF is host-endian specific.  Translating both BE and LE eBPF
to the NFP is feasible, but would require quite a bit of indirection.
The fact that I don't have access to any BE hosts that would fit
a 25G/40G/100G NIC is also limiting my ability to test big endian.

For now restrict the offload to little endian hosts only.
