This was to be expected - the code assumes a little-endian architecture.

This is also not news - I've already mentioned in here that this patch
lacks the loader.c hack needed for PWDUMP format files.  For it to work,
you have to use passwd-like files:


(this was also supported with the old patches).

But it won't work anyway, until the get_hash_*() and binary_hash_*()
functions are fixed (this is trivial to do - just add the proper "and"
masks for 4, 8, and 12 bits).
