Right, I'm pretty sure the ordering is the same on arm, mips,
s390, m68k, openrisc, sh and sparc when running 32-bit big-endian
code.

It's more likely to be related to the upward growing stack.
I checked the gcc sources and found that out of the 50 supported
architectures, ARGS_GROW_DOWNWARD is set on everything except
for gcn, stormy16 and  32-bit parisc. The other two are
little-endian though. STACK_GROWS_DOWNWARD in turn is set on
everything other than parisc (both 32-bit and 64-bit).
