[PATCH, PowerPC] altivec_expand_vec_perm_const reverses pack pattern arguments in little endian mode

This patch is another fix for vector handling in little endian mode.
The first two operands for a pack pattern are two vector registers that
form a contiguous array of inputs.  In LE mode the order of the operands
must be reversed so that the array remains contiguous in the reverse

This fixes a failure in the testsuite when run little-endian
(gcc.dg/vect/no-scevccp-outer-18.c).  Bootstrapped and tested big-endian
on powerpc64-unknown-linux-gnu with no new regressions.  Ok for trunk?

Patch by Anton Blanchard.
