Yes, I've just fixed one. grub-fstest works on big-endian now.
Couldn't test grub-probe since the Ubuntu on my PPC test machine is
I can certainly give it a try if it is in bzr now.
It is.
GRUB always assumes that RAID metadata is in little-endian. We don't
have any "native-endian parsers" since we assume that grub-probe
results are valid for GRUB runtime as well even if they run on
different endianness. If we need any support for structures which
can be either le or be we compile code twice, once for le, once for
be (look at e.g. cpio code). I couldn't test the images created on
big-endian platform due to ancient distro.
Fair enough.
I'll have to download the new distro when I'm on better internet.
