[PATCH]: Make JFFS2 endianness configurable

This patch allows the endianness of the JFSS2 filesystem to be
specified by config options.  It was discussed with dwmw2 on IRC.

It defaults to native-endian (the previously hard-coded option).

Some architectures (in particular, the NSLU2) benefit from having a
single known endianness of JFFS2 filesystem (for data, not
executables) independent of the endianness of the processor (ARM
processors can be switched to either endianness at run-time).
