Subject[PATCH v3 3/3] include: warn for inconsistent endian config definition
Date
We have seen some generic code use config parameter CONFIG_CPU_BIG_ENDIAN
to decide the endianness.

Here are the few examples.
include/asm-generic/qrwlock.h
drivers/of/base.c
drivers/of/fdt.c
drivers/tty/serial/earlycon.c
drivers/tty/serial/serial_core.c

Display warning if CPU_BIG_ENDIAN is not defined on big endian
architecture and also warn if it defined on little endian architectures.

Here is our original discussion
