Funny :-) This is a particularly crazy function where I decieded to
generate the clear_function at runtime since we had to many versions
optimized for the one or other processor or configuration which had
become excessivly large.

The register dump is unseless since you didn't say what all the addresses
Other information that's needed to make sense out of a bug report would be:
- gcc and binutils version used to compile the kernel
- kernel version and also where did you get it from (linux-mips.org?)
