Yes, selftest found it.

Not sure to leave it enabled is a good idea.
A least, leaving it failing probably will not annoy any user (according to my readings of #linux-sunxi, nobody use BE).

But I think only me will see it and since I already have this on my TODO list, I dont see any interest to leave it failing.
Furthermore, having a clean BE boot will permit to enable BE boots for thoses SoCs on kernelCI.
