Are you sure it's a R4600, not R4640 or R4650?

It's like a decade that I last read up on these but afair they have a
fixed mapping starting at 0x40000000.  It would make perfect sense to
use such a CPU in an X terminal.

Hmm, I'm not sure. I'd have to peel off the heatsink to be sure I guess. The very first kernel messages print this:

  CPU revision is: 00002020 (R4600)
  FPU revision is: 00002020

So I guess these values would be more specific if the CPU was indeed one of those revisions.

Cheers,
Adam.
