PA6T little endian mode: ppc64le kernels possible?

Hi All,

I read the following:

The part that is debatably the heart of the chip is a PowerPC core called the PA6T, a full blown 64-bit PPC with an FPU, VMX extensions and hypervisor support. It fully conforms to the PowerPC 2.04 architecture spec, and can operate in both big and little-endian modes.


Is it possible to boot a ppc64le kernel on the PA6T?
