The vmap flushing APIs I repeatedly pointed you at are the generic
solution.  They've been implement for arm, parisc and sh already, it's
just that no one has bothered to do it for mips yet.

Without the proper flushing anything that uses vmap, which includes
XFS is not "relatively unstable" but in fact not usable on systems
with virtually indexed caches.
