The BRK_BUG value is used in the BUG and __BUG_ON inline macros. For
standard MIPS cores the code in the 'tne' instruction is 10-bits long.
In microMIPS, the 'tne' instruction is recoded and the code can only be
4-bits long. We use the value of 12 instead of 512 when building a
microMIPS kernel.

Can we move the CONFIG_CPU_MICROMIPS to here and just call the thing BRK_BUG?

Or perhaps redefining it unconditionally. I am not sure what the implications of doing that would be.

That way...

  #define BRK_MEMU      514     /* Used by FPU emulator */

...We don't need this bit. Doing an #undef risks using different values for BRK_BUG depending on whether or not asm/bug.h is included.
