Are you guys referring to the patches attached to PR601?
IMHO, with a couple of weeks ahead, I would not be opposed to adding
them to rtems-4-6-branch, but ATM, I think these patches are too
intrusive to be "rushed into 4.6" "last minute".

Hmm, I know too little about the mips to be sure.
The essential question to me is:
Is -mips32 compiled code compatible to -mips1 compiled code?

Frankly speaking, I'd rather see these patches to go into cvs-trunk
first and then (optionally) backported to 4.6, later.
