I guessed you have it as init, so fork/exec stuff isn't tested yet. Am I  
right ? We had a lot of problem with fork/exec and signal delivering and
half of time/efforts we spent during entire port was to fix that stuff.

Independently. Unfortunately, Linux/MIPS FAQ doesn't have any links to
DECstation site. That's why, I had to pick up 2.1.100 from SGI tree
instead of 2.1.99. I am going to replace some our assembler routines by
yours because ours are worse. (We haven't experiences with MIPS 
assmebler before.)
