When sp=1 , for MIPS64 it generate 64 bit invalid address causing process to exit. The solution for above problem was to set sp value greater than stack allocated size in Assembly Prologue. But it will vary from process to process hence not suitable approached. The good approach was to handle SIGBUS signal with si_code=SI_KERENEL for invalid 64 bit address.

The Patch [ http://reviews.llvm.org/D11176 | To handle SI_KERENEL generated for invalid 64 bit address ] handle above mentioned case
