I don't know yet where the problem may lie in head.S, as I haven't got
beyond deciding that this area is the right place to look. I am now very
familiar with the R3000 CPU's tendency to crash in weird ways when encountering
such situations, and it seems to me that this is what's happening at the
moment. I have already had to fix R4K stuff in header files such as system.h
for the cli/sti macros...
