From http://www.sun.com/2004-0914/feature/ :


    ZFS is supported on both SPARC and x86 platforms. More important, ZFS is endian-neutral. You can easily move disks from a SPARC server to an x86 server. Neither architecture pays a byte-swapping tax due to Sun's patent-pending "adaptive endian-ness" technology, which is unique to ZFS.


A little bird told me that jffs2 was endian-neutral since forever. Tsk, tsk, USPTO.
