Hm, your start address is 0x80020000, but the load address of the jmr3927
(in the www.linux-mips.org tree) is 0x80050000. So maybe the address is
wrong, comparing with the old 2.4 kernel should tell.
I compared that against the working 2.4.12 kernel, which does indeed
have 80020000 in arch/mips/Makefile. I changed load-$(CONFIG...TX3927)
to use 80020000 instead of 80050000, but it still fails the same way.
There was also something that I had changed in our 2.4.12 that I had
forgotten, but my coworker reminded me that, in jmr3927.h, I changed
JMR3927_ROMCE0 from 0x1fc000000 to 0x1f000000 to have the proper
address to access some raw memory for internal purposes. I do not recall
whether that address is specific to our hardware or a typo, but I do not
think that it impacts the normal kernel anyway.
Our 2.4.12 kernel uses -mcpu=r3000 -mips1 to build the kernel. I tried
switching the arch to r3000 from r3900 in 188.8.131.52, but that did not
help. Perhaps -mips1 or an equivalent could help? I will try on Monday.
I am grasping at straws here.
Thanks to Thiemo and Florian for trying to help.
Have a good weekend.
