[PATCH 0/1] kconfig: add CPU endian selection beconfig and leconfig

The proposed patch allows a defconfig to be changed to big or little endian
by adding "make beconfig" and "make leconfig" functionality.

This follows on from a discussion with existing arm64 builds and lack of
ability to build for a big endian defconfig as such defconfig is not in
the upstream kernel.

Discussion started on the arm mailing list:

The same problem applies to various architecture families so it makes
sense to apply at a higher level as proposed.

This patchset is based on v4.4-rc1 and is available from github:
