Well, 2.6.14-rc1.  The -rc1 part says it already.  While the rc may stand
for release candidate, they -rc1 kernels are definatly far from ready for
a release.  All the new features for the 2.6.14 but hardly any of the fixes.
I really suggest you go either for 2.6.13 or upgrade to 2.6.14.

Talking about upgrading, 2.6.16.1 is a good vintage for MIPS so far.

Aside of this more general warning about -rc but especially -rc1 kernels
I think the remainder of your analysis is correct ...
