Thanks a bunch Matt!  The vmlinux.32 kernel boots into your stage3 just
fine.  Apparently the storage and network drivers are built into the
kernel, so there were no problems accessing the disk or getting the
network up.

However, it looks like PS/2 keyboard support wasn't included, so I can't
login at the console.  I enabled sshd and tried to login that way, but
got a "PTY allocation request failed on channel 0" error and was kicked
out after entering my password.

I then wrote an /etc/local.d script consisting of:
mkdir /dev/pts
mount -t devpts -o rw,nosuid,noexec,relatime,gid=5,mode=620 devpts /dev/pts

and rebooted.  It works, I can ssh in now!

localhost ~ # uname -a
Linux localhost 3.1.0-rc2+ #1 Wed Aug 17 17:05:33 EDT 2011 mips64 R5000

Thanks so much for your work on Gentoo/MIPS!  I was really surprised to
see a recent stage3 for this architecture.  And thanks again for the
kernel, now I'm up and running.  I'll be sure to post to this list
regarding any other issues I run into.
