I've put some "work in progress" stuff at:
 honk.physik.uni-konstanz.de:/linux-mips/debian/kernels [1]
It currently contains support for r4k-ip22 & r5k-ip22. The kernels are
*very* basic, I'll add more complex configurations during this week.  Can
someone send me .configs for the lasat boxes and the decstations?
I'll see if I get around to improve the mips/mips(el) support in the
kernel-package a bit...

 deb http://honk.physik.uni-konstanz.de/linux-mips/ debian/kernels/
 deb-src http://honk.physik.uni-konstanz.de/linux-mips/debian/kernels/source/

Note: When building the kernel-patch package "debian/rules
binary_images" before the usual dpkg-buildpackage if you also want to
build the kernels.
