Hello!

Recent versions of git are failing the testsuite on big-endian targets
such as s390x in Debian.

Build logs are:

> https://buildd.debian.org/status/fetch.php?pkg=git&arch=s390x&ver=1%3A2.23.0%7Erc0-1&stamp=1564449102&raw=0
> https://buildd.debian.org/status/fetch.php?pkg=git&arch=s390x&ver=1%3A2.23.0%7Erc0%2Bnext.20190729-1&stamp=1564449397&raw=0

Unfortunately, I cannot really read from the build logs which test in
particular is actually failing as I see a lot of lines starting with
the string "error".

Access to big-endian machines such as sparc64 can be retrieved through
the gcc compile farm [1].

Thanks,
Adrian
