The NSLU2 (like most (all?)) ARMs can run either endian.
I've run my slugs both ways.

The NSLU2 SoC, an Intel IXP425 defaulted to BE because it's a
"network processor" and network byte order is BE.
There was a slight but measurable network throughput gain when
running in BE vs LE.

I did a lot of coding for the IXP2855, which is the IXP425's discontinued big brother.
