Of course, most built-in functions operate only on corresponding
sets of elements of input vectors to produce output vectors, and
thus are not "endian-sensitive." A complete list of
endian-sensitive built-in functions can be found in <xref

Before the bi-endian programming model was introduced, the
<code>vec_lvsl</code> and <code>vec_lvsr</code> intrinsics
were supported. These could be used in conjunction with
<code>vec_perm</code> and VMX load and store instructions for
unaligned access. The <code>vec_lvsl</code> and
<code>vec_lvsr</code> interfaces are deprecated in accordance
with the interfaces specified here. For compatibility, the
built-in pseudo sequences published in previous VMX documents
continue to work with little-endian data layout and the
little-endian vector layout described in this document.
However, the use of these sequences in new code is discouraged
and usually results in worse performance. It is recommended
that compilers issue a warning when these functions are used
in little-endian environments.
