MIPS: Add generic support for multiple machines within a single kernel
Gabor Juhos [Tue, 23 Nov 2010 15:06:25 +0000 (16:06 +0100)]
This patch adds a generic solution to support multiple machines based on
a given SoC within a single kernel image. It is implemented already for
several other architectures but MIPS has no generic support for that yet.

[Ralf: This competes with DT but DT is a much more complex solution and this
code has been used by OpenWRT for a long time so for now DT is a bad reason
to stop the merge but longer term this should be migrated to DT.]
