The fault is in do_pipe() function when trying to
call:

struct inode *inode = new_inode(pipe_mnt->mnt_sb);

The pipe_mnt is NULL at this point because
init_pipe_fs () was not called yet.


Any ideas what could be wrong?


I saw this with a 32 bit kernel (for a 32 bit target). As far as I know, no 2.4.x kernels from linux-mips.org will work with gcc 3.4.x.

I have previously posted patches to this list that fixed the problem for me. Specifically I think the messages in this thread are relevant:
