Well, that can be evaluated once you post the patch.  Perhaps if you
split it into pieces, each addressing separate problems it might help
the reviewer "see" that each piece is safe.

Obviously, if you can create testcases separate from your mips work
that triggers some problem or crash that would help smooth the way for
each of these extra fixes.

In any case, even just having your work on the trunk is mega-better
than the current situation.  So thanks a lot for working on this.
