Thread-topic: init cannot spawn shell
Hi,

We had some problem in the past, where the reverse endianess bit was
set, that would result in a crash when the system starts init. Not sure
what bootloader you are using, but maybe it is worth checking the RE bit
in CP0.STATUS, since otherwise your userspace applications will run in
little endian.

Regards
