This is not the point. Truly nobody will run Linux/MIPS on a
1024-CPU RM1000, even if it could. Probably not even on a 2-CPU RM400. 
The point is that we can claim that Linux/MIPS is interesting enough 
that SNI supports it.

Fine. No problem with playing with new tools, but there must be
some sort of standard, even if it's not the hottest, coolest and
whatever bells-and-whissle-equipped stuff.
