Usually the DECstation source trees are based on the master Linux/MIPS CVS
repository and there are indeed some differences to Linus' releases.

Thank you, Florian, but I am not going to include your patch. Yes, I am
still using gcc too but I have changed my spec file. Please do so, too.
This will keep the difference to the CVS repository smaller and we will
have the chance of a smooth transition to egcs.
