Actually I think that won't work even if you managed to workaround
reloc issue.

MIPS have limited LOW MEM range accessible via KSEG0 (512M, but can be
less if your system place some MMIO register in that range). Kernel
image will be placed here together with built-in initramfs, and a
lot of memory like Page Table can only be allocated from here.

Such a huge initrd will occupy the whole LOW MEM range leaving no space
for others.

It seems like your system is 32bit, we have no solution for that
hardware limitaion. For 64bit system you may try to move your kernel
into XKPHYS instead of KSEG0.

Thanks
