If I recall correctly, the MS compiler uses a subltly different
calling convention/ABI than the "o32" gcc conventions assumed
by MIPS Linux, and certainly the assembler directives will be
different from those assumed by the Linux sources.  It *might*
be possible to hack up a MIPS Linux kernel source tree to
build with the MS tool kit, but it would be a lot of work, 
some of it subtle.
