This patch causes all mips images (mips, mips64, mipsel, mipsel64)
to crash when booting in qemu. Unfortunately the patch can not be
reverted easily since there are context changes, causing build failures
after the revert, so I can not verify if this is the only problem.

Crash log (same for all variants):
