I've been working on the tree, as I felt it was probably best for
me to organise the DECstation patches against the next kernel you will
release (and a buggy ELF loader isn't an issue for me at the moment).  I 
have found a few things... but the one you probably need to look at is a 
means for setting the mips architecture level for compilation in the main 
arch/mips Makefile now that you appear to have done away with the mips1/2/3 
directories, and the CONFIG_CPU_R... variable.

Funny, but the R3000 doesn't like running code compiled for mips2.... and it
only took an afternoon to find it! :-)
