Change 207154 by rwatson at rwatson_svr_ctsrd_mipsbuild on 2012/03/01 08:35:07

	Adapt the FreeBSD/MIPS exception handler trampoline to work with a
	kernel running out of xkphys.  Previously, this code assumed that
	MipsDoTLBMiss, the kernel's actual exception handler, was within
	range for 'j', which jumps to a 26-bit immediate.  Instead, jump
	via a register to allow greater address differences (e.g.,
	0xffffffff80000080 to 0x98000000001efc80).
	Discussed with:		Juli Mallett
