Printing is hardware specific; the debug code will need to be changed for
practically every MIPS platform on the planet, so I'm not too fond of the
idea unless somebody comes up with a cleaner infrastructure to do so.
Unfortunately we're not setup very well to do configuration detection etc.
in that debug code without adding tons of baggage.
