That would be too heavy, every load and store in GENERIC/GIMPLE would have an
associated byte swapping operation, although you don't know if they will be
needed in the end. For example, if the structure is scalarized, they are not.
> What frontends are affected?
The branch contains a working implementation for the C and Ada front-ends, and
the beginning of an implementation for the C++ front-end.
