[U-Boot-Users] MIPS, little endian, supported cross tool versions?

Hi Jörg,

I'm using U-BOOT on MIPS little-endian machines (R5000 and R4000)!!

U-BOOT's environment does not support mips little-endian,
but it is easy to change for little-endian.

Please look my small patch attached.

Also I recommend MIPS SDE as the toolchains introduced at following URL.
