thanks jacob.  i vaguely recall the discussion, i can't remember where.  on
seeing the explanation clearly laid out on comp.arch i think it's a really good
solution because it doesn't interfere or get confused with OpenPOWER LE/BE

i mean, it *is* LE/BE swapping, but at the 2x16-bit granularity level where
LE/BE is normally byte-level swapping.

i will add a stub wiki page for this, linked off of openpower/sv
