I think we need your help with the current MIPS code; it seems that
this commit is causing problems:

[MIPS] Fix $gp usage
The issue is with "cpu/mips/start.S"; with older toolchains (like ELDK
3.1.1 which uses binutils 2.14, we get:
start.S: Assembler messages:
start.S:348: Error: relocation out of range
make: *** [start.o] Error 1
With ELDK 4.0 and 4.1 (binutils 2.16.1) we get no erros, but these
cache.S: Assembler messages:
cache.S:243: Warning: Pretending global symbol used as branch target is local.
cache.S:250: Warning: Pretending global symbol used as branch target is local.
Jean-Christophe Plagniol-Villard reports that he sees no problems (no
errors nor warnings) with binutils 2.18
I wonder if it was possible to come up with a version of the code
that builds with somewhat older versions of the toolchains, too?
Thanks in advance.
