Endianness and bit twiddling or am I overlooking something?

I'm working on hybrid CPU/FPGA with an Arm Cortex A9 sharing die space with
The FPGA works by doing a bunch of rotations on individual elements of a
vector simultaneously, but in non-linear fashion.
I'm running into a problem though.
For instance imagine the char array of
The algorithm calls for a rotate left by 7 to each byte.
Which I would think should be the same as a rotate right by 1
72 which is 01001000
becomes 00100100 or 36 when I hand calculate it no matter which way I
When I try to simulate it, I'm getting a value of 9216.
However when I do a rotate right by 1 I get the correct answer.
Is this an endianess problem or am I missing something?
