I had to patch va-mips.h to #include <asm/sgidefs.h> rather than
The current errors are:
- warnings about struct flock64 not being declared (it's defined in
asm-mips64/fcntl.h but not asm-mips/fcntl.h)
- compilation stops because loops_per_sec is undeclared as far as
asm-mips/delay.h is concerned (although it seems fine in
This seems to imply that the mips architecture (as opposed to mips64) isn't
being maintained. Is this the case? Should I be using mips64 - but what
would be the point on an embedded CPU?
