Okay, nevermind, that was a screwup by me. At some point one of my
OpenWRT patch test commits made its way onto the wrong local branch, and
I didn't notice where it lived. Oops. (This commit was meant to be
incomplete, it comes straight from the OpenWRT patch). I think I found
the mips-bcm63xx (proper) patch, tried to search for it on my local
repo, and this thing popped up and I didn't look at it closely enough.
This is what I get for trying to work at 4am.

I take back the 'broken' then, we're just left with 'incomplete'. Makes
quite a bit more sense now, sorry for the confusion.

Cool, I'll see about applying them and working off of that. Thanks for
the confirmation.

FWIW, I'm trying to reverse engineer Broadcom's DSL driver, which I hope
will be useful so we can finally have a properly working OpenWRT
firmware for DSL routers based on this firmware.
