Um, Todd, they are _not_ two architectures. They're the same chips, so
they're the same architecture. End of story.
The only difference is the endian-ness, which is handled by LWHI/LWLO
macros and a couple of endian #ifdefs. They should be shared
_everywhere_ there's an arch/ subdir. That's the way mips(32) code
has always been designed.
