i've got two cleanly build mips64-764 initrds (based on cross linux from scratch, gcc 6.1 and linux kernel 4.7) that i want to boot with qemu

initrd.cpio ~14.5 MB
big_initrd.cpio ~323.4 MB

mips64-softmmu/qemu-system-mips64 -M malta -m 1GB -nographic -monitor telnet::4440,server,nowait -serial telnet::3000,server -kernel clfskernel-4.7.0 -initrd initrd.cpio

the smaller initrd.cpio (~14.5 MB) boots without any problem and shows the output of an test-program at end of the booting the big one with ~323.4 MB seems to hang right before the ramdisk/initrd extraction

both initrds are build by the same script - the bigger one just gets more programs in - the same script is used for building for
ppc64, alpha and sparc an both initrds are working on these platforms

small tests show that this seem not to be a kernel or gcc bug (same problem with linux 4.5,4.6.4,4,7, gcc 5.2,5.3,6.1)

is my big_inird.cpio too large for the malta platform (or my linux-conf?) or is this maybe an emulation problem with qemu?
