Can you say where your userspace comes from, so we can try to reproduce the issue?


   $ echo "1 2" | gawk '{ print $1 }'
   1 2

which should output (and does output on 3.19)

   $ echo "1 2" | gawk '{ print $1 }'

I'm going to try bisecting this over the next few days.

Are you running a 32-bit userland?  If so, enabling
MIPS_O32_FP64_SUPPORT should fix this.


32-bit userland (Debian for instance) typically shouldn't need special "Exprimental" config options enabled.

If we can identify the offending patch, we should revert it.
