Subject: testing mips port ?

hi all,

does anybody have real mips hardware that could be used to test the
new mips port? i've been trying to run libc-testsuite in qemu
(aboriginal linux), but the pthread cancellation tests are failing.
adding some debug code, it looks like qemu is not giving the signal
handler a valid/correct ucontext_t structure, but unfortunately i
don't have any real hardware to test it on to confirm that this is
just a qemu bug and not a musl bug.

by the way, there's no shared library support for mips yet, mainly due
to the abi being atrociously bad and incompatible with musl's clean
and simple way of doing dynamic linking, which is having a dynamic
linker that naturally just works without any relocations. so if you
want to test it, please just disable shared libraries for now.
