I was closely collaborating with v8 mips team to make libv8 debian patch.
What I have heard is that they are planning to upstream patches for big-endian
to google trunk for future versions, but it will not be so soon.
Until then, the mips support for v8 big-endian is on a separate branch of the
github repo for v8 mips port.
The review for big-endian patch is done internally inside mips v8 team.

Thanks a lot for improving libv8 portability.
Do you have any info to add about the upstreaming status of this? I see
you are in good relation with libv8 upstream, so I presume you already
submitted a pull-request. Is the review already ongoing/done somewhere?
Or is it a backport for something already landed?
