Hi Arne,

Thanks for the ldscript. I'm now running a kernel linked with your
ldscript and binutils 2.8, after recompiling half a dozen files with
-G 0. The updated pmax/conf/Makefile.pmax and mips/conf/kern.ldscript
will appear in the official sources just as soon as I know what
copyright to put on the ldscript.

I'm going to stick with
	GP?=	-G 0

until we understand how extern references from LKMs to data in the
kerne's .sbss/.sdata segments can be resolved.  It's easy enough to
override, though.

Does -G 8 really work without defining __GP_SUPPORT__?  Weird...

and thanks again!
