I have a bit more info re compiling the DEC kernel... if you tell
cc to produce little-endian using -EL, and as to output the
intermediate files in ecoff with -oformat ecoff-littlemips (you need to
uncomment the ASFLAGS line in arch/mips/Makefile and add this), AND
you tell ld to accept input in ecoff with -b ecoff-littlemips, THEN
the resultant kernel is usable when built with 2.6.2 binutils!
So, all we need do is alter the Makefiles a bit... <whew!>
