Thanks for the clarification, Ed. If FreeBSD mips code ends up 
bitrotting, it may indeed also suffer the same fate. However, this all 
depends on how much of it gets in the way of other things. Right now, 
the linux mips implementation stands in the way of adding the freebsd 
mips implementation cleanly (and a few other things), and this is the 
reason I'm proposing to remove it. Right now, I don't see any 
controversial bits in the new mips patch.

PSA: I'm going to proceed with the deletion later today.
