vhost: cross-endian support for legacy devices

This patch brings cross-endian support to vhost when used to implement
legacy virtio devices. Since it is a relatively rare situation, the
feature availability is controlled by a kernel config option (not set
by default).

The vq->is_le boolean field is added to cache the endianness to be
used for ring accesses. It defaults to native endian, as expected
by legacy virtio devices. When the ring gets active, we force little
endian if the device is modern. When the ring is deactivated, we
revert to the native endian default.

If cross-endian was compiled in, a vq->user_be boolean field is added
so that userspace may request a specific endianness. This field is
used to override the default when activating the ring of a legacy
device. It has no effect on modern devices.

---help---
This option allows vhost to support guests with a different byte
ordering from host while using legacy virtio.
Userspace programs can control the feature using the
VHOST_SET_VRING_ENDIAN and VHOST_GET_VRING_ENDIAN ioctls.
This is only useful on a few platforms (ppc64 and arm64). Since it
adds some overhead, it is disabled by default.
If unsure, say "N".
