I added some code to do_ri:
        if (unlikely(!user_mode(regs)))
                long real_epc;
                asm("move %0, $sp" : "=r"(real_epc));
                printk("----- LJR -------\n");
                printk("----- LJRx-------\n");

Which gave me some potentially useful info:

Too tired to debug further tonight, but hopefully this stack will stand out to 
someone :)
