These macros can handle memory pages in KSEG0. Any suggestions on how

Take a look at how kmap() works on x86 and how the mappings are used.

Highmem is supported for MIPS since ~ 2.4.18 or so.

Right, I had the 2.4.21 HIGHMEM working on PMC-Sierra Yosemite. Also, at that time, Sibyte supported HIGHMEM.
