I remember testing RSBAC on some old SGI stations for a few days. It was remote access because the hardware
was physicaly on MIT, so i didn't make any serious testing. It managed to boot and RSBAC was working, no
problems with syscalls, etc. I think the kernel was 64 bit and userland 32 bit.
What kind of MIPS is that you need RSBAC running on? On old hardware there used to be cache coherency issues
and kernel required patches to fix it (wouldn't even boot without, hardware design error by SGI engineers
and it was a workaround). But that's completely separate from RSBAC itself which should not have any
problems - code is fine on both little and big endian.
Just, like Amon said, take a never kernel. You might have to port some patches specific to MIPS if any.
Shouldn't collide with RSBAC too much.
