Subject: FP emulation patch available
> I have made a patch against the 2.2.13 CVS kernel from the patch that
> Kevin Kissell (sp?) put out earlier. This patch is a subset of Kevin's
> patch. It includes the following pieces:
> 1) FPU emulation support
> 2) removal of the MIPS instruction bitfields (replaced with macros)
> 3) mips_cpu stucture and C based cpu identification
> I think a gdb segment snuck in there too.
> The patch is available at:
> Could interested parties please look at it and provide more testing than
> me and my Indigo2. My next goal is to intergrate the FP unimplemented
> exception code into the FPU emulation framework. I then shall see about
> moving it all to 2.3 (I may move parts sooner if necessary).
> Comments appreciated,
