Fix bug with register values byte order in expression evaluation

Authored by mamai on Feb 11 2016, 1:21 PM.



The evaluation of expressions containing register values was broken for targets for which endianness differs from host.

This patch fixes issues like:
(lldb) reg read pc

pc = 0x00400020  arithmetic.elf`main + 32 at main.c:12

(lldb) expr -f hex -- $pc
(unsigned int) $2 = 0x20004000

Where the second command will now give the right value (0x00400020).

Looks fine to me, but let's put in an assertion to make sure our assumptions in making this change are not violated.

Let's put an lldbassert in here to make sure scalar.GetByteSize() == register_data.GetByteSize().
I know it ought to be, but I'm a little bit wary of that code.
