I submitted the bug upstream. It turns out it was a bug in the test
suite which only showed up on big-endian systems. They've fixed it in
libiberty (in GCC) and I added the patch to binutils on core-updates.
Tests pass on powerpc-linux and x86_64-linux.

It also made this commit much much smaller :)
