Note I generally don't test with HJ.Lu's toolchain at all. It may be
broken for MIPS, I don't know. Also due to known bugs in older toolchains
the minimal requirement is binutils 2.16; the vanilla FSF version from
ftp.gnu.org will do.
(2.15 will core dump for some configurations but if it doesn't die, it seems
to do just fine)

Let's see. What CPU card are you using on your Malta? And if it's an
FPGA card, what bitfile is loaded? Yamon will print information on the
CPU after powerup or reset.
