 * VPE spport module for loading a MIPS SP program into VPE1. The SP
 * environment is rather simple since there are no TLBs. It needs
 * to be relocatable (or partiall linked). Initialize your stack in
 * the startup-code. The loader looks for the symbol __start and sets
 * up the execution to resume from there. To load and run, simply do
 * a cat SP 'binary' to the /dev/vpe1 device.
