Sean Davidson recently booted a kernel on a DECsystem 3900 with an
r4400 daughterboard (same motherboard and CPU as a DECstation 5000/260).
Expect to see sys/arch/mips with either mips1 or mips3 support really,
*really* soon. Personally, I hope the 1.3 release will allow building
a single kernel with support for both mips1 and mips3. But no promises.
