Thread-topic: [PATCH] MIPS: Make CP0 config registers readable via sysfs.
Lars,

This patch was requested by our DSP/Codec group to help with selecting the best 
user-space codecs at runtime. Simply reading /proc/cpuinfo was insufficient. I 
posted this patch more for feedback and interest with minimal expectations that 
it would make it upstream. This patch will always be in our supported branches, 
but I will defer to everyone else on its worth for upstream.

-Steve
