OK, thanks (at present, opcode_tilegx.h has no any changes, it is only a
copy from Linux kernel).

OK, thanks. But I have sent patches v8, please help check them, if they
are really not suitable (about splitting patch), please let me know.

For translate.c, it has three patches, each patch can pass compiling
(but the other patches in patch v8 can not). Please help check patches
v8 for more details, if they are really not suitable, please let me know.
