MIPS: Allow R2 CPUs to turn off generation of 'ehb' instructions.
David Daney [Tue, 12 May 2009 19:41:53 +0000 (12:41 -0700)]
Some CPUs do not need ehb instructions after writing CP0 registers.
By allowing ehb generation to be overridden in
cpu-feature-overrides.h, we can save a few instructions in the TLB
handler hot paths.
