Actually, some of the header files in /usr/include/sys in an IRIX
installation include lots of explicit memory-map info, register bits, etc.

(Just in case anybody didn't know, the various Iris 4D-series machines
use various MIPS processors from the R2000 to the R10000, and most of
the ones in between - except the R6000 of course...)
