Ok, so far so good. It looks as if the majority of the
Irix stuff will work with the Broadcom board - it's
just that the tests to activate it (in ROMIO, for
example) are too specific. It isn't just the main
configure script that needs fixing - but the changes
are more generalizing than anything.
The only things that look as though they're going to
be Broadcom-specific (if OpenMPI is going to make use
of them) would be the CPU-to-CPU channel and the
phenominal number of network devices built in. (4
gigabit ethernet, 2 522 Mbit/s serial, and a
The best thing might be to move the generic MIPS stuff
into one set of files, then #include include them into
specific files for, say, Irix and the Broadcoms.
