This issue is similar to support native 64LP mode on R4000 (or better)
and having an 32LP mode for applications. You'll need multiple syscall
tables (similar to emulations) and syscall converters.
I'd like to see both be possible.
BTW, did you know that ULTRIX actually run big-endian at the start
of MIPS port?
