The current TUN_VNET_LE related code is already doing cross-endian: without
this patch, one can already run a LE guest on a BE host... wouldn't it be
confusing to mention cross-endian only when the guest is BE ?

What about having a completely distinct implementation for cross-endian that
don't reuse the existing code and defines then ?
