Hey, I know this guy ;-)

I have an about two weeks old snapshot installed on the Origin 200 which
I'm using for crosscompiling. I'm however experiencing a number of problems
with the kernel which I'm building and I'm starting to search the problem
in binutils rather than the kernel sources. On the other side I managed
to build most of Redhat 6.0 with a snapshot from August plus a few patches
and that seemed to work very well.
At this Ulf Carlsson (firstname.lastname@example.org) is looking into adding the
missing N32 and 64 ABIs which we'll need for Linux/MIPS64. He just
started, so there are no results yet.
