errm. Right.
Something like this maybe?

[PATCH]: ext4: fix big endian access for flex groups

On big endianess plattforms newly created ext4 file systems cannot be mounted
and show messages like:
[6923911.715968] EXT4-fs: not enough memory for 522250 flex groups
[6923911.715973] EXT4-fs: unable to initialize flex_bg meta info!

We have to access s_reserved_gdb_blocks with le16_to_cpu.
