Hi Jim,

I've got complete patches to do this.  I thought I'd already submitted
them, but I found out yesterday morning that I hadn't... simply an
accident.  I've posted my complete set of glibc patches here:

http://return.false.org/~drow/mips/glibc-2005-09-22-HEAD-MIPS64-NPTL.tar.gz

As of this morning, they work for me, using GCC HEAD and binutils HEAD.
Rather more work is required for GDB (see my earlier post today and the
last patch in the above tarball).

There are some test failures.  IIRC, at least one of them is a GCC
unwinder bug that I haven't dug out the fix for yet from my archives.
I'm going to try to get all of this merged soon.
