Linux is neutral, my powerpc linux is most definitately big-endian.

With a stab in the dark? I offered an opinion which may very well be valid but not being an "expert", I guess I could be wrong.

No idea about what's happening, because this O2 used to work, and nobody opened it nor moved it, nor nothing.

-K Required for files larger than 2 Gigabytes. Cpio will issue a
warning and skip such files if an attempt is made to archive them
without specifying the -K flag. Used only with the -o option.
Mutually exclusive with -c, -H options. Because the -c option can
not be used, device files with major numbers greater than 127 or
minor numbers greater than 255 could not normally be archived; the
binary format is extended with this option so that those device
files can be backed up, but will not be able to be restored on older
or non-IRIX versions of cpio with the correct major and minor
number. Warning: Use of this option may result in the creation of
an archive that is not portable to other machines; a warning is
issued on the first file causing the archive to not be portable.
