Nothing special is needed for the kernel. You need to start with
e.g. "qemu-system-mipsel -M malta" to select Qemu's malta machine

The special qemu kernel is now deprecated, as the malta kernel is a
full replacement which corresponds better to real existing hardware.
This is btw. also true for Qemu itself, the mips_r4k machine is still
a) uBoot supports it as the only mips Qemu target
b) Some out-of-tree machine definitions use it as a baseline
