[Mono-dev] [PATCH] Mono port to the MIPS 64-bit

In general, I think the changes look good. They are rather monolithic  
- I do wish they'd been submitted to the list in a piecemeal fashion  
as they were developed - they'd be a lot easier to digest that way.

I think the odds of some breakage of the o32 port are quite high given  
what I've seen so far. But, I suspect that the changes should simply  
go in at this point.

For future reference, even on the SiCortex machines it should be  
possible to run/build/test under an o32 userland such as debian by  
simply doing a chroot. That's a fairly common technique that's used  
under MIPS/Linux to provide multiple, incompatible userlands under a  
single kernel. In fact, it's how I got the n32 port of Mono started.
