$28 is the current pointer, $29 the stack pointer.

You've overflowed the stack to the point where the process structure got
overwritten. which also explains the nonsense pid value. -2142680720 is
0x80494970 which is probably some valid kernel address.
Find what's consuming so much stack - you should only use a split fraction
of that. The epc value also looks quite strange because it's lowest bit is
set - does your CPU support MIPS16?
