It's important to test string functions for both endiannesses, since they
can easily have endian-specific bugs. You should be able to run string/
tests for big-endian with QEMU userspace emulation, for example, if you
don't have an actual big-endian system to run tests on (some parts of the
glibc testsuite, such as threading tests, may have problems with QEMU
userspace emulation, but for string tests it should be fine).
