Not to mention, the Cobalt stages are MIPS IV, and therefore includes
some 64-bit instructions, the WL500g will be MIPS32, and does not
understand 64-bit instructions.
So you can expect illegal instructions left, right & centre.
As Stephen has pointed out too, messing with CHOST is asking for it... I
speak from experience. :-)
(tried it on my x86-based laptop ... boy did I have fun finding the
pieces and putting them back together again :-/)
