In sys/arch/mips/include/lock.h there actually is an #ifdef regarding  
MIPS I but for some reason it doesn't seem to "fire" when compiling  
NetBSD-current for the Qube. So there's still something a little  
inconsistent happening here, probably inside the mega-confusing (for  
me) makefiles... :-/ I'd like to either make that #ifdef kick in or  
(preferably) build for MIPS II+ and not MIPS I. A hint for doing  
either would be very much appreciated. :-)
