Hi Nick,

oops, looks like I missed this:

/srv/src/kernel/next/arch/mips/lib/uncached.c:45:6: warning: variable
'sp' is uninitialized when used here [-Wuninitialized]
        if (sp >= (long)CKSEG0 && sp < (long)CKSEG2)
            ^~
/srv/src/kernel/next/arch/mips/lib/uncached.c:40:18: note: initialize
the variable 'sp' to silence this warning
        register long sp __asm__("$sp");
                        ^
                         = 0
1 warning generated.

Cheers,
Anders
