glibc port to kfreebsd/mips

This is work in progress: http://wiki.debian.org/Debian_GNU/kFreeBSD_MIPS

The good:

- Basic userland working. Tested: bash, coreutils, gdb, make, binutils, gcc

The bad:

- Static binaries only; Dynamic linker crashes (both ld.so and libdl,
although libdl works for small objects).
- NSS (hence getpwuid et al) crashes as it relies on libdl.
- TLS not implemented as it requires some kernel fixes first.
- Thread support not implemented either (but LinuxThreads is needed for build).

The ugly:

- Doesn't work on QEMU yet (gxemul works though).
