Pull request #98: https://github.com/apache/felix/pull/98

> Specify ARM processor Endianness
> --------------------------------
>                 Key: FELIX-5593
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-5593
>             Project: Felix
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Framework
>    Affects Versions: framework-5.6.1
>            Reporter: Kerry Billingham
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: framework-5.6.4
> In accordance with OSGi core specification, ver. 6 Table 4.2, specifying processor type
'ARM' is now deprecated. It is now preferred to use the processor type 'arm_le' or 'arm_be'.
> Felix currently determines the processor type by requesting the system property "os.arch"
however this has been found to return the deprecated 'arm' processor string for example on
the RaspberryPi installed with Raspbian OS and the latest Oracle JDK8 for ARM.
> To meet with the above specification it is proposed that Felix be modified to appropriately
to determine the endianness of ARM processors. A PR with suggested modifications is to follow
this Enhancement proposal.
