On mips with spidermonkey17, I had:
- Adapted to make it generate code binutils recognises as PIC for n32.
Fortunately it was already PIC, but not using the special constructs
- Adapted it to generate different asm code (nop->ssnop), hoping it will
fix problems I heard.
- Tried to use a newer ABI with it. in the past, everyone used mips o32
ABI, and I am using n32, which is binary-incompatible and not a simple
adaptation. Turns out this path was a wrong choice.
- Failed to run anything, because it would instantly assert on me not
having a 4KB page size like most linux/mips.
It assumed all architectures have a 4KB page size except SPARC which
has 8KB IIRC.
Most netbsd/mips is 8KB, and everyone on lemote yeeloong prefers 16KB,
including linux users.
It was expecting a compile-time fixed PAGE_SIZE, and used it as the
size of some structs. so I'd have to adapt it to a non-constant one,
or expect my packages not to run on anyone else's machine.
