All of that is already available in the standard kernel, what's missing
in the installer is the userland support for PPPOE, and an automated

(optional: Edit debian/rules to comment out all other subarches than

dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc -B 2>&1 |tee ../makelog
This method uses the kernel config from configs/mipsel/r5k-cobalt.
