I think that only affected the R4000 machines, that is why the crimsons
only work on o32 (i.e. MIPS II R3000) mode. Since they were the 1st
machines to run the R4K I assume only the early versions of the chip were

In any case, n32 is pretty much the ticket for these machines (MIPS III
Isa I think, R4x00) so you can do 64bit ops, just use 32bit pointers..
which is OK for a desktop machine IMO.
