I have wrotten a thread in Linux Forums about a CPU Layer

It's fairly much impossible to do this unless you know the precise
format of the data.
What exactly are you trying to achieve?
Anything for which we have source is unlikely to be so badly-written
that it has endianness issues — at least anything we care about.
And anything for which we *don't* have source is probably going to have
to run in qemu-i386 anyway.
