O2 r5k should definitely boot uncached and might even work to some
extent.  r12k will work in theory but nobody has ever tried.  Expect
problems.  The most important thing you can do to help is grab the
tree, build it, try it, and tell me what you have, what works, and
what doesn't work.

If you're a hacker, add the most important step, "Fix what doesn't
work."  I've reviewed the code about 5 times and haven't been able to
find what's wrong.  This code desperately needs additional sets of
eyes peering at it.
