Afaik it's not as trivial as this.  The R14000 has some changes to the FPU
which seem to require handling.  I unfortunately know no details.

My guess is a lot of the R14K and R16K details are still protected. I can't find any processor manuals on them. Hopefully, I'll be able to get a hold of an R14K eventually to figure out just how well this patch works (maybe it'll reveal enough to see what the FPU does differently). If only the prices on eVay drop...
