The Au1xxx is schizophrenic about the way it handles endianness.
The core starts up big endian mode, the bus interface depends upon
configuration options. When you want to run the processor in
little endian mode (as is the case with this board), there are still
times during initialization that it is running big endian. For these
sequences, the instructions have to be byte swapped because the
bus interface is running little endian. You are also using little
tools, so you will have to also byte swap these before disassembly
to get the proper instructions.
