Add support for the Extensible MIPS ("eMIPS") platform. The
NetBSD/emips port runs on Xilinx and Beecube FPGA systems and the
Giano system simulator.
eMIPS is a platform developed at Microsoft Research for researching
reconfigurable computing. eMIPS allows dynamic loading and scheduling
of application-specific circuits for the purpose of accelerating
computations based on the current workload.
NetBSD eMIPS support for NetBSD 4.x was written at Microsoft Research
by Alessandro Forin and Neil Pittman. Microsoft Corporation has
donated full copyright to The NetBSD Foundation.
Platform support for eMIPS is the first part of Microsoft's
contribution. The second part includes the hardware accelerator
framework and will be proposed on tech-kern soon.
