EFS test kernel

ftp://ftp.linux.sgi.com/pub/test/vmlinux-970916-efs.gz has rudimentary
support for EFS partition mounting, and it lets me do some basic stuff
on my IRIX partition, like list small[*] directories and run binaries.

I've got my IRIX root mounted at /usr/gnemul/irix (the emulation code
requires that location), and have a symlink /lib/rld ->
/usr/gnemul/irix/lib/rld.  I sometimes get problems specifying
executables by explicit path (./ls or /usr/gnemul/irix/bin/ls), but if
I put the current directory in my path and chdir to there, things like
ls and date and wc and uname work just fine.

Please let me know if you get any problems.

[*] small == not requiring indirect extents
