I'm planning to try porting arcboot to ip27 (mips64).
I plan to do this by cross-compiling... this is actually the only
option since there's no 64 bit userland yet.
* I'll be cross-compiling (using the mips64-linux-gcc & friends that
are provided on ftp.linux-mips.org), which means some makefile hacking...
* there's no mips64-linux glibc, which means no libc headers are
available. So I need to either cut&paste libc headers, or remove
dependencies on them. This affects lots of code.
* the e2fs stuff... how is this being maintained? It uses libc
headers a bit... can I kill them? Or will this make it hard to update
to new upstream e2fsprogs releases?
