The following patchset implements KVM support for MIPS32R2 processors,
using Trap & Emulate, with basic runtime binary translation to improve
performance.  The goal has been to keep the Guest kernel changes to a
minimum.

The patch is against Linux 3.7-rc2.  

There is a companion patchset for QEMU that adds KVM support for the 
MIPS target.

KVM/MIPS should support MIPS32-R2 processors and beyond.
It has been tested on the following platforms:
  - Malta Board with FPGA based 34K (Little Endian).
  - Sigma Designs TangoX board with a 24K based 8654 SoC (Little Endian).
  - Malta Board with 74K @ 1GHz (Little Endian).
  - OVPSim MIPS simulator from Imperas emulating a Malta board with 
    24Kc and 1074Kc cores (Little Endian).

Both Guest kernel and Guest Userspace execute in UM. The Guest address space is
as folows:
 Guest User address space:   0x00000000 -> 0x40000000
 Guest Kernel Unmapped:      0x40000000 -> 0x60000000
 Guest Kernel Mapped:        0x60000000 -> 0x80000000

As a result, Guest Usermode virtual memory is limited to 1GB.

Relase Notes
============
(1) 16K Page Size:
    Both Host Kernel and Guest Kernel should have the same page size, 
    currently at least 16K.  Note that due to cache aliasing issues, 
    4K page sizes are NOT supported.

(2) No HugeTLB/Large Page Support:
    Both the host kernel and Guest kernel should have the page size 
    set to at least 16K.
    This will be implemented in a future release.

(3) SMP Guests to not work
    Linux-3.7-rc2 based SMP guest hangs due to the following code sequence 
    in the generated TLB handlers:
         LL/TLBP/SC
    Since the TLBP instruction causes a trap the reservation gets cleared
    when we ERET back to the guest. This causes the guest to hang in an 
    infinite loop.
    As a workaround, make sure that CONFIG_SMP is disabled for Guest kernels.
    This will be fixed in a future release.

(4) FPU support:
    Currently KVM/MIPS emulates a 24K CPU without a FPU.
    This will be fixed in a future release
