 Hmm, I would use "-V -K -L -O -m /home/flo/" instead. ;-)  And
also "-t elf64-tradbigmips -a mips:5000" as you really want 64-bit
addresses and opcodes beyond R3k (and your ksymoops isn't configured to
use a 64-bit target by default).  Using vmlinux might give additional
information beyond what can provide and it should work just
fine once right options are passed to ksymoops -- I used to get correct
output with no warnings at all. 

 At least we know the error is in drivers/video/fbmem.c:fbmem_read_proc() 
because of buf being null.  But please retry with the above options to get
some addresses decoded.
