I did now get around to looking at this, sorry for the delay.

The thing is that the warning shows an actual bug when it was previously
broken silently. The configuration sets CONFIG_CPU_LITTLE_ENDIAN
but the compiler only supports big-endian mode.

The m32r architecture is being removed in linux-4.17 as we have shown
that there are no remaining users, so I would suggest not doing anything
here and leaving the warning in place.
