 What's the problem?  Now the branch and the trunk are in sync (I just did
a `cp' from the trunk as the missing function was the only difference), so
you may apply the same changes to both. :-)  Otherwise you'd have to deal
with the difference.

 The MIPS32/64 fix is obvious; the 32-bit CPU is not so, but I have a sort
of an idea.  I'd like to get rid of all ifdefs in the area.  Not a high
priority, though, sorry.
