The s_lock change is in current sources, but it concerns me because it
seems it could break other mips-based platforms (ie, pre-mips2).  I'd
vote for reverting that change and putting in Ian's template change
instead --- which for anyone not paying attention, was:

Seems to me the template tweak would be a lot simpler to hack around on a
per-installation basis if needed.
