IMHO we only need two versions: big-endian filesystem with big-endian
16bit indexed bitmaps and little-endian filesystem with little-endian
bitmaps. The rest is just the result of careless copying. Note that
the minix filesystem does no byte swapping, so native byte order is the
only sensible mode.
