I tracked it down to a missing:

ifdef LOADADDR
LINKFLAGS     += -Ttext $(word 1,$(LOADADDR))
endif

in arch/mips/Makefile

I have no idea who added it or removed it.

I also am forced to edit the ld.script file to replace the LOADADDR
inserted with sed with 80000000.

Am I suppose to be accomplishing what I did above some other way?
