Yes, it is a MIPS64R1 system with 64-bit (well 40bit) physical address, we
don't have rixi either on hardware on in kernel overrides. git bisect pointed
the specific patch.
And with your patch it works only on 64 bit compile, 32 bit kernel fails on
|malloc: subst.c:521: assertion botched
|free: called with already freed block argument
For 32-bit the config is nlm_xlr_defconfig in the source tree. Let me know if
you need any further info.
