I ment something like this:
file mipstest.o
mipstest.o: ELF 64-bit MSB mips-3 relocatable, MIPS R3000_BE, version 1, not
stripped

So as and/or ld generates bad code?

Does anyone already work on it?

And if binutils are broken that means kernel is 32-bit as well?


Anyway 32-bit applications should run pretty fine?
