In playstation case, IIUC it requires special gcc only for kernels,
to work around R5900 bugs around specific privileged instructions.
I also doubt all R5900 quirks in kernel sources have been restored..

Anyway, there are so many MI changes that require MD implementation
since netbsd-3 days (softint(9) etc for vmlocking2, ipl(9) stuff
for yamt-idlelwp and yamt-splraiseipl, vm changes for yamt-km etc.)
so it depends on motivations and spare time of all developers :-)
