It looks very strange.  "lui k1, %hi(kernelsp)" should be enough for
the -msym32 kernel.  What is a version of binutils and gcc you are using?

And could you show me disassembled list of handle_int (or some other
rountines using get_saved_sp) of failed kernel?

If you were using gcc 3.x, does this fix work for you?

#if defined(CONFIG_32BIT) || (defined(KBUILD_64BIT_SYM32) &&  __GNUC__ >= 4)
                lui     k1, %hi(kernelsp)

# mips64-unknown-linux-gnu-ld --version
GNU ld version 2.16.1

# mips64-unknown-linux-gnu-gcc --version
mips64-unknown-linux-gnu-gcc (GCC) 4.1.1 (Gentoo 4.1.1-r3)

And the disassembly of vmlinux.32 for the handle_int function is attached.

I haven't built a kernel w/ gcc-3.x for some time, probably last time being when I was chasing down the strange funkiness in my Octane's userland in 2.6.19.
