Dear All,

I am working on our TX39xx(32-bit MIPS) reference board .  The problem
occurs in the assembly code generation for "la" instruction.

The line,  "la t3, mips_cputype" ,  generated the following two assembly
codes:

     lui          $t3,0x8019
     daddiu   $t3,$t3,14712    <---- my system crashed at this 64-bit
instruction

I would like to know why the "daddiu" instruction is generated instead of
"addiu" for MIP1 code.

The following lists my development environment:
1. Cross compiler:  binutils-mips-linux-2.8.1-1.i386 and
egcs-mips-linux-1.0.3a-2.i386
2. Linux Kernel source:  linux-2.2.13-20000211
3. The gcc command line display by specify -v option:

gcc version egcs-2.90.29 980515 (egcs-1.0.3 release)
/usr/lib/gcc-lib/mips-linux/egcs-2.90.29/cpp -lang-asm -v
-I/work/adhawk/linux-2.2.13-20000211/include -undef -$ -D__ELF__ -D__PIC__

head.S

I am quite new to the Linux world.  There are definitely something that I
did not setup properly.  If anyone know the reason, your help is highly
appreciated.  Also, what are the latest and stable tool-chain for MIP1
big-endian development?

Thanks,
