This patch set introduces preliminary support for Cavium Networks'

Well, in the context of a technical mailing list there isn't much more information available at the link you've quoted; although I do understand you might not be the most appropriate person to point it to. Honestly, stating: "The family comprises SOC devices built around MIPS64 cores" would provide about as much (little) information as the web site does. :(

You can register for free at www.cnusers.org and they have a bit more information there as well as existing SDKs with full linux source for older versions. However, it looks like the really gory details are available only after signing an NDA.
