Booting FreeBSD out of redboot should be no problem. I have used the
redboot loader on a Intel NAS to load a FreeBSD kernel and boot
successfully, this was an arm core rather than mips however.
If you have a working redboot you can also use the redboot shell to
flash your kernel (with embedded MFS image) into the SPI part and then
rewrite the load script to boot that.
The debian-installer armel handbook had some useful docs in it for the
platform I was working on, as well as the official redboot site.
