I know that currently playstation2 is supposed to be built with a special
"mipsEEel-netbsd" toolchain. However, this seems only to be required for
the kernel, which implies that only *asm* kernel code needs it.
Would it be possible to hand-assemble the needed EE instructions via ".word"
directives, and use the standard "mipsel" toolchain to build the kernel?
This would simplify maintenance and allow easy cross-building, at least
until the "mipsEE" code is in a released gcc/binutils version used by
