I finally found the time to get the kernel working for the Mediatek
mt7688.  Just the uart works now, so I still need to do the ethernet
and hopefully wifi and other stuff.  But it boots all the way to the
bootargs ask, and then running !rc lets you run rc in paqfs.

I had a heck of a time getting it to work at first, till I tracked
down an issue in strlen, that comes from the strchr code.  Lots of
stuff broke, and this bug also meant error messages wouldn't print
properly.

running this on the mt7688;
    int n1, n2, n3, n4, n5, n6;
    char *a1, *a2, *a3, *a4, *a5, *a6;

    a1 = "\0";
    a2 = "A";
    a3 = "AA";
    a4 = "AAA";
    a5 = "AAAA";
    a6 = "AAAAA";

    n1 = strlen(a1);
    n2 = strlen(a2);
    n3 = strlen(a3);
    n4 = strlen(a4);
    n5 = strlen(a5);
    n6 = strlen(a6);

    iprint("STRLEN %d %d %d %d %d %d\n", n1, n2, n3, n4, n5, n6);

would get ;
STRLEN 0 1 1 2 1 6

and now it gets;
STRLEN 0 1 2 3 4 5

Also, to just get the world built for spim,
/spim/include/ape, needs the files copied over from mips
/sys/src/ape/lib/9/spim, also needs the files copied over from mips.

This boots and runs on the last release, but when setting up an
updated system to run diff for the patch, I found that Proc has been
changed in a few ways that breaks it.
