Nice! Now I really need to get a new power supply for my O2...

We default to N32 userlands on all mips64 - as in 64bit registers etc.
enabled but 32bit address space.

Not sure they work properly, but gcc -mabi=64 ... is probably what
you're looking for.

I've been running n32 kernels on mine, LP64 ones always ended up
panicing on copyout() when entering userland. Good to see you got that
fixed :)

Please commit, even if it only partially works, so other people can
work on it as well ( mostly referring to myself, I have an Octane
here... )

have fun
