I believe that these are only in p4.  The only mips things that I
could find in my current tree were the atheros drivers.

The p4 stuff is a port of the netbsd mips code with a lot of stuff
ripped out.  I'm not sure that the right stuff remains, since it was
targeted at modern mips devices.  Yet many new mips devices use
'ancient' design.  I don't think that the WRT54G uses such things, but
you never can tell with mips cores :-).

Totally agreed!
