The image I have generated works correctly here. You can find it on:


The md5sums are:

12082c31bae04e909ce2f8a082a96b35  initrd.gz
0b0c8a0e87338bf48bae59438a46bd54  vmlinux-2.6.22-3-qemu

It has about the same size as the mipsel one, which confirms the problem
is in the build process. Thiemo, could you please have a look at this?
