The driver dictates the endianness of the FUSE protocol session. The
virtio-fs device specification states that the device looks at the first
request's fuse_in_header::opcode field to detect the guest endianness.

If it sees FUSE_INIT in its native endianness then no byte-swapping is
necessary. If it sees FUSE_INIT in the opposite endianness then
byte-swapping is necessary on the device side.
