PCI endianess

as far as I know, the PCI bus is little endian, even on big endian machines.
Is this true for RS6000 (44p/270) too ?

The reason I'm asking is, during the port of a PCI card driver, I
noticed, that I have to convert byte-order when writing/reading on
the mapped PCI memory of my card.

Did I miss something here ?
