I believe Cavium's David Daney is on debian-mips, we can talk to him
to see if there is any possibility of making donation.

As for the GSoC project, the student seems to not get access to the
hardware Cavium offered, nor the main mentor (Cc'ed), so there is no
feedback about stability/other stuff about those hardware.
