Subject: [PATCH] arch: Kconfig: Let all little endian architectures define
 CPU_LITTLE_ENDIAN explicitly

x86, ia64, and arm(64) are little endian, and also another architectures
may be little endian (mips, sh, powerpc, and m32r) which already marked
CPU_LITTLE_ENDIAN explicitly.

Some drivers (e.g. some of "drivers/isdn/hisax") may only support little
endian (CPU_LITTLE_ENDIAN), and some drivers may only support big endian
(!CPU_LITTLE_ENDIAN).

So export all little endian architectures within kernel wide, so can let
Kconfig easier for the modules which only support little endian or only
big endian.
