maybe it's due to the following:

 if (cpu_has_dsp)
 	status_set |= ST0_MX;

Seems to be alright:

> #define ST0_MX			0x01000000

 2c:   3c040100        lui     a0,0x100 << 16 = 0x01000000

> #define ST0_CU0			0x10000000

 8:   3c051000        lui     a1,0x1000 << 16 = 0x10000000

I think, that the problem is here, as the ST0_MX bit is set conditionally:

 20:   30630010        andi    v1,v1,0x10
 24:   10600003        beqz    v1,34 <configure_status+0x34>

 if (cpu_data[0].ases & 0x10) 	// 0x10 = MIPS_ASE_DSP

  #define MIPS_ASE_DSP           0x00000010
  #define cpu_has_dsp            __ase(MIPS_ASE_DSP)
  #define __ase(ase)             (cpu_data[0].ases & (ase))

and then status_set doesn't have ST0_MX bit set? Just printk the status_set.
