...and can we work around the problem if it's only in the kernel?

If this affects userland too, we should set MKGCC=no by default (so
snapshots don't ship a bundled gcc), and change the $MACHINE_ARCH until such
time that playstation2 can run unmodified NetBSD/mipsel binaries.

It should be dropped from the autobuild list; it is not cross-compilable
with the standard tools.
