I'm about the commit the emips port (ready in a day or two once I
get some changes merged).  It doesn't touch much outside arch/emips,
but having done already one mips64 merge on the code, there is a
probably going to be fair number of changes.  Which commit order
is better? (the emips code is very pmax-like)
