The reporter is saying that the QString::fromLatin1 function generates corrupt 
translation when the 8-bit char input is not aligned to 2 bytes (which it 
doesn't have to be, it's char).

I don't expect anyone to be able to review and fix the MIPS DSP / DSPv2 code, 
so the only option here is to disable and delete it, making MIPS use the 
compiler-generated translation only. But I'd like to get a confirmation from 
someone who can. I think I see a QEMU MIPS stage in COIN, but please note that 
DSP and DSPv2 code might be different, so both need to be tested.

In 2 weeks time, I'll disable the DSP version that didn't get a fix or "cannot
