RTEMS uses GNATS as a problem tracking system.  Go ahead and file a
problem report at  In
this case, it looks like you have two things to report.

Put Greg Menke <gregory.menke at> as one of the other people
interested since he reviews all the mips stuff.  How is performance on
the mips32 looking?  What CPU model are you using?  If wouldn't happen
to be one of the Broadcom ones would it?

Attach the patch to the PRs and then you don't need to edit them later.

Improvements are always welcomed.
