Lets try this one; the kernel was built with gcc-4.1.2 and binutils-2.17 this time around, and I tested it before running objdump on it. It just hangs right after loading:

Setting $netaddr to 192.168.1.12 (from server )
Obtaining  from server

Now I can not see any problem with the disassembled code.  No idea why
it does not work at all...

BTW, why IP32 does not support 32-bit kernel, though it has 32-bit
firmware?

Well, what's the need to use the move/lui/ld sequence over move/lui/daddui/dsll/daddui/dsll//ld anyways? I'll have to warm the Indy up and try a 64bit kernel there I guess, to see if it exhibits similar issues with this segment of code.
