Ugh.. now I'm confused.  I would not have expected the results you've
seen from these tests.  But I still can't understand *how* the
emulation could be correct: IIUC MO_LEQ would mean it loads the 8
bytes as a single 64-bit LE integer.  Which should be the same as
loading one 32-bit LE integer into the low half of the target
register, then a 32-bit LE integer into the high half ot the target
register.

As I said above, the deposit32x2 will swap the order of the two ints,
but it won't byteswap the individual int32s which should have been BE
in memory.

Can you find the flaw in my reasoning?

I am a little suspicious that whatever the compiler does to convert
the vector to an array via this union might be undoing a byte reverse.

I'd be more confident if you used VSX instructions to extract and
store separately one of the 32-bit subwords of the vector.
