Recently i am working on stanford SIMOS and trying to make it
run linux/mips kernel.

I've managed to run debian-mips root disk on it now. Work includes
adding a serial device simulation to simos,hack around memory/io
address mapping and adapt a linux/mips kernel for simos.

Many powerful features are to be brought back. I am struggling with
SIMOS symbol handling for ELF kernels. The backdoor,data collection
etc. need check too. I would be very glad if anybody here is willing to

The main purpose of my work is to provide a studying environment for people
who want to learn something about linux/mips but without corresponding
hardware at hand. There are more and more such people in China, and I
am a member of a free orgnization that want to help them.

I believe SIMOS will be helpful for linux/mips kernel developing too.
