I support the RM200C in the little endian configuration and I'm probably the
only user of Linux on an RM machine at all.  Afaik no little endian systems
have been shipped since SNI and Microsoft axed NT for MIPS making my
configuration extremly rare and I've not been able to obtain the big endian
firmware for the system - which is showing signs of upcoming hardware death
so whenever that happens I won't be able to support the SNI [1] code anymore.
Just to make life a little bit more misserable I only have hardware
documentation on the RM200/300 C (possibly D, would have to check) series
so I have not idea to what degree the architecture differs the RM300.

Conversion of the existing code to work on a big endian RM200/300C would
be easy to do though and I can help whoever wants to try ...
