Well, first off, for VPE loader itself, when it comes to CPS we have vpe_run() that derives from amon_cpu_start() in arch/mips/mti-malta/malta- amon.c. There is no implementation of amon_cpu_start() on other platforms. Secondly, I suppose VPE loader works uniquely for APRP, and part of APRP (such as IRQ related stuff) depends on platform code. So it makes sense (IMO) to impose the dependency of APRP on the root (VPE loader). Thanks, Deng-Cheng
