That's what I found:

8810da14:       8c82001c        lw      v0,28(a0)
8810da18:       00809021        move    s2,a0
8810da1c:       8c510000        lw      s1,0(v0)
8810da20:       00a09821        move    s3,a1   
8810da24:       8e220118        lw      v0,280(s1) 


8810e224:       0e04367f        jal     8810d9fc <ip22zilog_receive_chars>
8810e228:       02803021        move    a2,s4
8810e22c:       0a04386e        j       8810e1b8 <ip22zilog_interrupt+0xd8>

Well, I'm sure "MIPS assembly for Dummies" must be available
somewhere. While I keep looking please help me ;-)


There is certainly no purpose in remaining in the dark
except long enough to clear from the mind
the illusion of ever having been in the light.
