I'd like to look at your patches but getting a git url prevents me to do
this because replying/commenting is not possible. Can you please send
patches to the list instead ?

I have some questions/comments :
- Why this patch is not merged in your patchset ?
- even if it should not affect the kernel, compiling with
-march=loongson2f even for 2e (you're matching on loongson2 so 2e and
2f) looks weird.
- you're using the -mfix-ls2f-kernel binutils flag but afaik upstream
binutils doesn't know it. I really don't know how such a thing should
be handled but it seems strange to use this flag before binutils has
been patched for it. (the previous comment about -march=loongson2f
applies here too)

fwiw, I like this new organisation. thanks.

hm.. I thought that the mipsdha stuff was refused when submitting 2e
support. Can someone check ?
