I think that as a general rule kernel patches should be architecture 
independant to allow cross-compilation.  Also the patch in question has quite 
a few things other than the bare cobalt functionality (I stick as close as 
reasonably possible to what Sun ships).

However I could easily add the MIPS patch into my package, it might be the 
easiest way to solve this.
