The mips bios error is actually a warning, the execution continue.
Unfortunately we don't have a working bios for MIPS. Getting RedBoot
working is probably the best.

The problem you see is probably that you are not passing -M malta to
select the Malta Board emulation. Note that the default has changed
here. QEMU 0.9.1 is using the "mips" emulation as the default, while the
current SVN is using the "malta" on eas the default.
