I'm attempting to get grub working on the Lemote Yeeloong 8101B
(Loongson 2F) as a second-stage bootloader from PMON.

I have grub-2.02-beta2-499-g4fe8e6d mostly working, with one exception:
none of the devices on the cs5536 (Geode companion) are accessible,
which unfortunately includes the IDE interface for the internal disk.

As far as I understand code, if GRUB wants to have cs5536 and does not find it it stops. If you enter GRUB it means it skipped cs5536 initialization. According to code, it can happen only if grub_arch_memsize != 0. I do not see where GRUB itself sets it before this check. So my only guess that PMON (whatever it is) fills in this field in GRUB header. We could add debug print to verify this.

This grub is able to access filesystems from a thumb drive plugged into
one of the USB ports: the one next to the ethernet jack, which is the
one that is not connected to the cs5536.  Grub is unable to access the
other two USB ports, which are connected to the cs5536.

I'm judging what disks are accessible based on tab completion, trying
various partition names like (hd0,msdos1) (ata0,msdos1), and also using
the 'search' command.

lspci from grub prints:

   00:02.0 10ec:8139 [0200] Ethernet Controller
   00:03.0 126f:0712 [0300] VGA Controller
   00:04.0 1033:0035 [0c03] USB Controller [PI 10]
   00:04.1 1033:00e0 [0c03] USB Controller [PI 20]
   00:09.0 1022:208f [ff00]

This is correct; it is the PCI ID that GRUB expects.

whereas "lspci -nn" from my booted system reports:

I built this grub from GNU Guix, which uses stock GCC 4.9.3 and binutils
2.25 configured for the N32 ABI.  I passed TARGET_CFLAGS="-Os -mabi=32"
and TARGET_CCASFLAGS="-mabi=32" to configure.  Here's the command I used
to build the grub image:

   grub-mkimage --prefix='(hd0,0)/boot/grub'                            \
     --config=grub.elf.conf --output=grub.elf                           \
     --format=mipsel-yeeloong-elf --verbose ata part_msdos ext2 reboot  \
     halt lspci ohci usbtest usbms linux fat xfs part_gpt multiboot2    \
     minicmd configfile gcry_md5 hashsum echo search

where grub.elf.conf contains:

   set root=hd0,0
   set prefix=($root)/boot/grub

If it would help, I can provide instructions for how to reproduce the
same toolchain and/or grub using GNU Guix.

Any ideas or suggestions would be much appreciated.
