Keep in mind that the OpenWrt kernel has a patch to disable the use of the in-
kernel floating point emulator, and so binaries compiled by OpenWrt are done so
using a soft-float toolchain. This is not the case for Debian binaries afaik.

It does not for me as well. But it looks like Debian binaries are compiled
with an earlier ABI which is more compatible than MIPS32r2.
