Comment(by cdavid):

 According to the doc I could find, HP-UX always use big endian mode for IA
 arch, so I am a bit confused about what the patch is solving for a HP-UX
 user.

 The code should be checking for the OS and CPU combination I guess: IA is
 set to little endian on Windows NT and Linux, and big endian on HP-UX.
 Most OS has an API to check the endianness, maybe HP-UX has one as well.
