Source: openvswitch
Version: 2.5.1~pre+git20160626-2
Severity: serious


openvswitch failed to build on almost all of our big-endian architectures:


As you can see it failed on mips, powerpc, s390x, m68k, ppc64 and sparc64,
all of which are big endian. powerpcspe is also big endian, but a build
hasn't been attempted there yet. hppa is the notable exception, as it is
the only big endian architecture where this has built. Perhaps it is
because of a difference in one of the build-deps or in some other build
environment difference, or perhaps it is for some other reason. Or maybe
this isn't an endianness issue at all?
