The big endian stuff was just old code, so from the point you were right
with removing it.  It's not an entirely correct solution though, on some
MIPS IDE systems the OS has to do endianess conversion, on some the
hardware takes care of it.  IDE as a big endian thing that was made
popular through the little endian PC platform has funny endianess issues
at times ...
