There is no chance whatever that you will get anything. If you want
to have any chance at all of getting this to work I would recommend
you ask Harald for his latest patch; it provides some level of support
for r5k-based IP32 (O2) systems. r10k O2 suffers from the same
cache-noncoherency problem as r10k I2 does, and to the best of my
knowledge nobody has ever really tried to even boot one.
Not to discourage you at all...there's just a lot of work to do.
