As of development source tree the generic parts of the kernel know how to
detect different CPU types. Still not much of FPU detection - practically
every MIPS configuration has a FPU.

Frieder, could you regenerate the patch as context diff (-urN) or unified
context diff (-urN)? You sent an ed style diff which are really hard
to read, let alone to integrate into an changed source base.
