This patch set introduces preliminary support for Cavium Networks'
OCTEON processor family.  More information about these processors may
be obtained here:

http://www.caviumnetworks.com/OCTEON_MIPS64.html

This initial patch set adds support for booting an initramfs to a
serial console.  Follow-on patch sets will add support for the on-chip
ethernet, USB, PCI, PCIe, I2c and other peripherals.

Patches:
         1  - 6  add OCTEON specific files.
         7       generic support for booting processors other than CPU0
         14      generic cpu_to_name improvements.
         29 - 32 generic 8250 serial port changes.
         33      OCTEON serial port additions.
         34      generic mips dma changes to support these patches.
         37      defconfig
         
The remainder just hook things up.


Feedback certainly welcome,
