Actually, I removed it :)

If you'd like the rant behind it I'll mail it privately.

Anyhow, I've been trying to push for the kernel to use either

a) -march depending on whatever cpu is specified
b) -mtune otherwise (this will generate generic code and then tune for

heck. if you do nothing you'll get mips1 code. It should really default
to mips2 (for things like, say, atomic operations), but no one has made
the change and I don't feel strongly enough since I'm using a 64-bit cpu
and n32 :)
