It's the mono part that I'm a little weak on.  For the rest: 10+ years
programming MIPS under a couple of different operating systems, about
1/2 of which was in assembly language...

There's just a few mono/JIT internals I'm getting stumped on.  If I can
get some help on those, I think the rest should come together in pretty
short order.

[The target I'm working on is Linux[Debian]/MIPS big-endian o32, with a
2.6.15 kernel]
