Handle compiling with -mbig-endian on aarch64, which generates binaries
with mixed code vs data endianness (little endian code, big endian

Else mismatch between code endianness for the generated signatures and
data endianness for the RSEQ_SIG parameter passed to the rseq
registration will trigger application segmentation faults when the
kernel try to abort rseq critical sections.
