Specs for the R4000 and the R10000 (which uses the same model) are both
available online. Search for "R4000 Microprocessor User's Manual"
(substitute R10000 as necessary).
The R4k-style watchpoint is trickier, as the registers hold a physical
address, so some additional handling is required for cases where the
virtual-to-physical mapping is changed (like when the area being watched
is paged in from the backing store).
