I reply to my own message, providing more details, hoping that anyone
here could give a hint or the solution.

During bootup on ip32, since 2.4.24-rc1, the system loop printing a
message about unexpected interrupt #13. (see transcript below.)

I enabled more debug in the kernel, and studied the code. What I
understood is that interrupt #13 from CRIME means that the system should
check on MACEISA for the real interrupt.

The interrupt start appearing just after executing the code
psmouse_init() that enable ps2 drivers for keyboard and mouse. Keyboard
interrupt #49 is enabled first and mouse interrupt #51 is enabled later.

When initialising the keyboard interrupt (it is a MACEISA interrupt),
the interrupt start appearing, so I am pretty sure that interrupt #13 is
related to the keyboard interrupt.

When the system receive interrupt #13, it correctly detect it is a
MACEISA interrupt, and check for mace->perif.ctrl.istat value. The
problem seems to be that this value is zero instead of having bit #9 on
(that would mean, interrupt #49, keyboard).

So, either the interrupt #49 is not correctly enabled, or maceisa
interrupt aren't correctly checked.

Does this description ring a bell to anyone?
