No.  It simply means that the BSPs that you are looking at do not
have a NIC so the network stack is disabled.  Many RTEMS BSPs
disable the network stack.

The network stack should work fine on a MIPS platform.  The mips
is one of the platforms without an optimized in_cksum routine
so I am sure performance could be improved.  The performance of 
the network stack is also dependent on the performance of
