I don't know that Linux on MIPS supports the APIs X needs to do POSTing 
yet...  If you implement the legacy_mem and legacy_io APIs for your 
kernel, you should be able to get X working though (see 
Documentation/filesystems/sysfs-pci.txt for info on what those APIs do and 
how to implement them for your system).
