Background - I'm trying to compile Paul's decstation kernel for a Magnum 3000.
I'm using Paul's kernel because the 2.1.36 has too many r40000isms. I'm using
the include/asm/bitops.h from 2.1.36 (since the 2.1.1 bitops.h fails for a big
endian compile). I get most of the way there and then it dies with the
following error:

mips-linux-gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/amd/milawa/root/u2/staff/davidm/mips/li
nux-2.1.1.dec/include -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-point
er -G 0 -mno-abicalls -fno-pic -mcpu=r3000 -mips1  -c head.S -o head.o
head.S: Assembler messages:
head.S:665: Warning: Used $at without ".set noat"
head.S:705: Error: attempt to .org/.space backwards? (-53796)
head.S:705: Fatal error: Cannot write to output file.
make[1]: *** [head.o] Error 1

Line 665 is SAVE_ALL, and line 705 is the end of file. Not being intimately
familiar with mips asm, I currently don't have much clue here... help?
