The joys of cross system debugging.  You need to set ksymoops option
-t, it is defaulting to elf32-i386 which is no good for mips objects.
You almost certainly need to set environment variables KSYMOOPS_NM and
KSYMOOPS_OBJDUMP to point to versions of these programs that understand
mips.  If mips prints the code in big endian format then you need to
use ksymoops option -e.  man ksymoops and scan for 'cross'.
