As Dan already pointed out the config.mk file probably needs some
adaption to support other MIPS configurations. It just happened to
work like this for the currently supported boards.

Yes, I know. But the Purple is really a 5Kc system - as far as U-Boot
was concerned the code there was no prolems using the 4Kc
configuration for it.

No, lazuiness - you only change what really needs to be changed to
get something working. As long as this is a one-time use this is IMHO
even acceptable. It's when more systems get added when you have to
think about a more general approach.
