You can only manipulate this bit if you know microMIPS is supported.  So

I decided to surround with SYS_SUPPORTS_MICROMIPS so the function could be
optimized out in v7 of the patch.

Since this is (AFAICT) run after cpu_probe, and cpu probe sets
MIPS_CPU_MICROMIPS in options[0] if config3 has  MIPS_CONF3_ISA set
(as seen in the context), couldn't you do just the following in

        if (cpu_has_mmips) {
                unsigned int config3 = read_c0_config3();

                        write_c0_config3(config3 | MIPS_CONF3_ISA_OE);
                        write_c0_config3(config3 & ~MIPS_CONF3_ISA_OE);

Yes, that would work.  It even looks nicer.
