I'll try this again ... I think I've got the corrupt patch issue resolved.

From: Shane McDonald <shane_mcdonald@pmc-sierra.com>

The wording of the help entries for CPU_MIPS32_R1, CPU_MIPS32_R2,
CPU_MIPS64_R1, and CPU_MIPS64_R2 was confusing.
The entries have been slightly reworded to improve the readability.
