I've actually spent this week porting the gdb CVS head to MIPS; I've
got it almost entirely working now.  There's one problem with SIGTRAP
that I haven't quite figured out yet, and thread attach isn't quite
working, and there's a kernel bug I've been repeatedly triggering that
I think I just fixed.  I anticipate it all being done in a couple of
days - I'll post here and on the GDB list when I have it in slightly
better shape.
