That said, we do have RI/XI working well in our kernel (for non-stack
memory), so it is something we are interested in pursuing.

David,

 I am Very Interested in this.  we also want RI/XI,
 at least for for userland (and, very importantly,
 including the stack), but haven't yet time to deal
 with the issue.  (our platform is the 4KSd, which
 has SmartMIPS (and thus has RI/XI)).

 is what you have at linux-mips.org someplace?


Not at this time, I will see if we can get it merged for 2.6.30...
