looks like

        /* GIO errors are fatal */
        if (gio_err_stat & GIO_ERRMASK)
                goto mips_be_fatal;

in ip28_be_interrupt is too strict. Load speculations to addresses
in the GIO address range where no device responds, will probably always
produce bus timeout. It might be worth to use 
check_addr_in_insn(cpu_err_addr, regs)) before killing the machine.


        if ((gio_err_stat & GIO_ERRMASK) &&
             check_addr_in_insn(gio_err_addr, regs))
                        goto mips_be_fatal;

might be better.


Crap can work. Given enough thrust pigs will fly, but it's not necessary a
good idea.                                                [ RFC1925, 2.3 ]
