Some CPUs implement mipsr2, but because they are a super-set of
mips64r2 do not define CONFIG_CPU_MIPS64_R2.  Cavium OCTEON falls into
this category.  We would still like to use the optimized
implementation, so since we have already checked for
CONFIG_CPU_MIPSR2, checking for CONFIG_64BIT instead of
CONFIG_CPU_MIPS64_R2 is sufficient.

This breaks every non-R2 64-bit processor.

I disagree. As I said before, the entire block is wrapped by #ifdef MIPS_R2. non-R2 processors will not get any of the optimized byte swapping code. I just want to allow all 64 bit R2 processors to use the optimized code.
