This is not actually what you want but it might help a lot in porting
the whole stuff.  Yesterday I've commited the stuff that is required to
let CACAO[1] use the OpenJDK libraries as Java core libraries.  I've
only tried it with PowerPC yet[2], but it should work on MIPS too (when
the j2se stuff builds).

As I said, it's not HotSpot running on MIPS, but you can see if j2se
builds and runs ok, which might help a lot to find bugs.

I'm collecting the bits required to build j2se here[3], but it's not
finished yet.
