yes, i have tested it on qemu/malta, the attachment include a
configuration & an init ram fs: initrd.gz

boot it:

$ qemu-system-mipsel -kernel vmlinux-qemu-malta-ftrace -initrd
qemu-malta-initrd.gz -append "root=/dev/ram0 init=/bin/sh
console=ttyS0 ramdisk_size=3000"  -nographic -M malta -hda /dev/zero

and also, i just test it on loongson2f(fuloong 6003) with the
configuration file: defconfig-fl-rt-ftrace, but configured only as
serial port debugging mode via a minicom, so, you need to add the
other kernel modules if not have a serial
port :-(

ooh, it's my fault :-) is the right one~~
