Apparently the changes from the yamt-idlelwp branch reserve MIPS register
r23 for curlwp for a kernel size/(speed?) benefit. The Atheros HAL,
which we do not have the liberty to recompile, uses r23 for its own
purposes, which clash with the kernel's. Consequently, one cannot use
ath(4) on a MIPS box running -current.
Is it possible either to use some other register, or to make the use of
r23 for curlwp a compile-time option, so that development in -current
on MIPS boxen such as the Meraki Mini can continue?
 Based on an Atheros MIPS SoC. :-)
