Things've been interesting here, of late. I've got the
toolchain to compile natively 64-bit code (with
considerable effort and the instructions from Linux
From Scratch) and I have a working Linux 2.6.12-rc2
kernel with the SB1 patches from the linux-mips
mailing lists.

So far, so good. Tried compiling the 2.6.14-rc1
kernel, forward-porting all the changes that hadn't
been merged in. the kernel locks in the initial boot
sequence, after a couple of printf's.

Are there any kernel patches for the Broadcom/SiByte
processors that are specific to the 2.6.13-* or
2.6.14-*, or any options that are definitely producing
Bad Code on these kernels but not earlier?
