Could you please post your mipsel-linux-gcc -v output? It might help.
I've never tried building Linux with any of the Sc/Sd/SmartMIPS options,
so I really don't know what you could be experiencing. One thought that
comes to mind is that the -march=4ksd option may be treated as a hint to
generate compact code (for smart cards) in a way that -march=mips32r2
is not. I'll ask around...
