Yes I think jhash() produces different results for input > 12 bytes
on big and little endian machines because of the following code
in include/linux/jhash.h:

        while (length > 12) {
                a += __get_unaligned_cpu32(k);
                b += __get_unaligned_cpu32(k + 4);
                c += __get_unaligned_cpu32(k + 8);
                __jhash_mix(a, b, c);
                length -= 12;
                k += 12;
        }

The contents of "k" is directly used as u32 and the result
of "__get_unaligned_cpu32(k)" is different for big and
little endian.
