Hi Ralf,

 AFAIK, the "CONFIG_MIPS_VPE_APSP_API" was used to get the console dump of the SP program running on the VPE1 (usually a bare-iron program compiled with MIPS provided toolchain) . This option was useful on the MALTA platform during the initial evaluation of the APRP or APSP mode.

Now if this support is removed then is there any alternative provided by MIPS ?.

Thanks and Regards,

Thanks.  I've already applied a probably identical patch.

With kspd gone, the question is if there is still any point in keeping
CONFIG_MIPS_VPE_APSP_API and MIPS_VPE_LOADER?  I've nuked those also but
I'm holding back for others to get a fair chance to speak up against.
But the fuse is now lit.
