If you're referring to the MIPS32 patches that came from the MIPS 2.2 tree,
we generally test those on an R4600 Indy and a couple R5xxx platforms as
a matter of routine. This is not to say that there might not be some change
to the R4x00 support between 2.2 and 2.4 that interacts pathologically with
the MIPS32 code...
