It seems that very few programs do.  Perhaps it would be easier to
make the kernel driver accept little-endian samples, do the conversion
itself, and post those to the driver thanto go on a hunt for all the
poorly-written software out there?

It doesn't appear so; I hacked the kernel module so that it set the
supports little endian var to 1, but it behaved even worse then (no
sound plays at all, and arts gets all confused).
