Hi,
i yesterday had a try booting my RM200 (Big Endian Sinix firmware)
with a big endian compiled kernel - It immediatly crashes in ArcWrite
as the Bios is not an Arc (Probably a bit similar).

Does anyone have interesting informations about that prom ?

BTW: There are really some funny lines in arc/init.c :)

arch/mips/arc/init.c
     36         if (pb->magic != 0x53435241) {
     37                 prom_printf("Aieee, bad prom vector magic %08lx\n", 
pb->magic);
     38                 while(1)
     39                         ;
     40         }
     41 

Calling ArcWrite in case of no Arc ;) At least one knows what happens
if the Firmware is giving out EPC Faulting address (Which in this case
is 0x6c)
