Ok figured it out. It stems from the fact that the CPU endianness (arm 
being LITTLE endian) doesn't match the endianness of the LCD peripheral 
(big). So even though I configured the FB, pixman was setting the 
endianness via the configure script. Which brings me to my next 
question, shouldn't pixman, xserver (and anything else that I may not 
have encountered yet) have this setting configured in a single place?
