Ugh. Ok, I'll keep _R3000 & _R4000 as they are now, and add the
_MIPS_ARCH and _MIPS_TUNE that Chris suggested.
Question: if gcc treats two processors as the same for scheduling,
should they have the same _MIPS_ARCH and _MIPS_TUNE value? Like,
should -march=r2000 and -march=r3000 set _MIPS_ARCH to the same
value (_MIPS_R3000?) to reflect what GCC's doing, or should there
be separate _MIPS_R2000 and _MIPS_R3000 defines? How about
-mtune= and _MIPS_TUNE?
