So from what I can tell this uses a 32-bit kernel and 32-bit userspace,
and sets both pu_has_64bit_gp_regs and cpu_has_64bit_addresses to 0.

Now if you ever wanted to make use of the 64-bit registeres it would
require quite some changes, which probably really should have a new
Kconfig option. In fact a lot of the workaround for the 64-bit
registeres that are in the code already should be keyed off such an
option rather than CONFIG_CPU_R5900.
