Heh, I've never had to use -P.  Hence my script[1] doesn't use -P.  Mind
you, I'll possibly end up porting that script to use git, once I get git
figured out (and the repository dragged across the web... good thing the
month's quota is almost up).

Incidentally, you do realise that you don't `make bzImage` like you do
under x86 don't you?  On mips, we use the raw vmlinux file (or
sometimes, we `make vmlinux.32`).  This is fed to the bootloader.
