Here is a little patch to optimize swab operations by using "wsbh"
instruction available on mips revision 2 cpus. I do not know what
condition I should use to compile this only for mips r2 cpu though.

Comments ?
Looks good aside of the one issue you've already raised yourself:

+/* FIXME: MIPS_R2 only */

I was actually asking for advices :)

I can see only two simple ways to do that:
(a) we can define a couple of new macro ie CONFIG_MIPS32_ISET_R[12]
that can be set depending on the selected CPU;
(b) define a new macro CONFIG_CPU_HAS_WSBH;

Don't we already have CONFIG_CPU_MIPS32R2?
