The attached patch essentially just copies what R12K does for R14K, and should 
allow systems running an R14K CPU 
actually boot.  Granted, no machine currently in git can actually use R14K, but 
the patch is generic and 
non-invaisive, so I thought I'd shoot it to the list anyways.  Minor notes 
below.

1) Octane is the closest system that can run Linux that supports the
   R14K CPU, but due to exhorbant prices, no one has, as of yet, managed
   to get their hands on either a full R14K system or the CPU module
   itself.

2) Due to item #1 above, this patch hasn't even been tested.


Comments Welcome.
