I got some strange results since this commit:

arm: boot: Support big-endian elfs
Support ARM big-endian ELF files in system-mode emulation.
an elf, determine the endianness mode expected by the elf,
and set the
relevant CPU state accordingly.
With this, big-endian modes are now fully supported via
so there is no need to restrict the elf loading to the TARGET
endianness so the ifdeffery on TARGET_WORDS_BIGENDIAN goes away.

It seems that when I try to load a big endian image on a
Cortex-R5 it gets confused:
* the instructions are fine it executes some code.
* GDB address / insns are wrong endianness.
* in monitor x command is good endianness.
* the data order seems to be wrong endianness:
Here is my Hello World: lleHlroW
We used to add a armeb-softmmu/qemu-system-armeb target for the
big endian cpu but it doesn't work anymore as it's double
reversed by the elf endianness (data_swab <= 2).
And I'm surprised we don't set the CPSR_E and SCTLR_EE bits
