I have given a try. Here the mipsel initrd.gz (the qemu one dated
20071210) works. The mips one doesn't work, but I get a different error:

Freeing unused kernel memory: 132k freed
Error -3 while decompressing!
Error -3 while decompressing!

Looking at the size, the mips initrd.gz is 400kB smaller and I see no
reason for that. Either mklibs is still broken on mips, or images are
generated with the old buggy mklibs.
