[Mono-dev] MONO MIPS64 Port Source Code is ready for Download

Hello Damien,

One additional important comment from our side according to MIPS64 port. We 
have started our port from modification of existent MIPS32 port. So, it 
means that in our source tree MIPS64 presented as seriously redesigned 
MIPS32 sources. If somebody would like to start merging process then first 
of all he should defined separated architecture MIPS64 and after then 
changes should be moved here. Otherwise it will be quite difficult to keep 
MIPS32 and MIPS64 in scope of single architecture with huge set of #ifndef 
preprocessors instructions.

I hope that this tip will be useful.

This is the Git commit which corresponds to the SVN revision on top of

which the MIPS64 backend was developed.

As Rodrigo mentioned, Git-level cherry-picking won't be possible as

things have diverged quite a bit since then.  My only goal was to sort

things out and get a clear(er) view of the important changes; I put the

result out there in case somebody else is interested.

Cheers, -D
