attached is a first set of patches to make arcboot somewhat work for
big endian mips, mostly:
 - compile with -fno-pic, since the IP22 PROMs can't handle this
 - IP22 uses ARCS not ARC (MEMORYTYPE)
 - IP22 is big endian (LARGEINTEGER)
 - move everything into KSEG0
 - make function prototypes same as in libc
 - remove i386 references
 - convert some ARCS errorcodes to EXT2_ET_ errors, since
   ARCS errorcodes let ext2fs_strerror crash.
It does still not boot the kernel correctly, but it's quiet close...
Regards,
