No.  I've been running little endian with linux servers running back to
2.0.28 or so, or shortly thereafter.  2.0.33 is stock DR3, MkLinux's
current branch is 2.0.37 pre-patch whatever....

The related code I noticed changing was related to quota support.  It
doesn't appear to be in the ext2fs code changes, though, because I tried
backdating all of those (other than simple formatting and notational
changes0 to no avail.  I'm thinking it might be in the general filesystem
