Successfully tested on mipsel without modifications to my code.

Two drivers required non-standard versions for the correct operation
of on diskless serial console DecStation 5000/200.
Aside from that, nothing of the rest of the kernel, nor any of my code
was altered. Driver issues should bear no relation to bootmem.

Specifically, the dz.c and a PMAD-AA-capable DEC
Lance driver (PMAD-AA driver thanks to Dave Airlie) were needed. Further
pursuit of those issues should and will be directed to arch maintainers.
