i just got a and objectdump handy while the r5k crashed :)

It seems "bcops" is at 0x0 which is - aehm - bogus ?

Between 20000601 (Random date) and today r4xx0.c has changed
this way:

-static void no_sc_noop(void) {}
-static struct bcache_ops no_sc_ops = {
-       (void *)no_sc_noop, (void *)no_sc_noop,
-       (void *)no_sc_noop, (void *)no_sc_noop
-struct bcache_ops *bcops = &no_sc_ops;

And DECLARE_BCOPS is defined in include/asm-mips/bcache.h as

#define DECLARE_BCOPS struct bcache_ops *bcops

Which is not the same - There are no "noops" suddenly
and it seems this doesnt get initialized correctly
at all and bcops stays "0" although in the normal
codepath in arch/mips/sgi/kernel/setup.c contains

    256         /* Now enable boardcaches, if any. */
    257         indy_sc_init();

Which itself is arm/mips/sgi/kernel/indy_sc.c

    221 void __init indy_sc_init(void)
    222 {
    223         if (indy_sc_probe()) {
    224                 indy_sc_enable();
    225                 bcops = &indy_sc_ops;
    226         }
    227 }

But it doesnt seem indy_sc_probe is "true" for R5k machines.

This might be all of the problem with r5k machines ... We only
ran with the "noop" bcache functions and now the r5k is
not running with any function :)
