It does not work on Loongson 2F, because Loogson 2F is 64-bit capable
but supports MIPS-III only. You'll need 2G, 3A ,or 3B to use this work
if you'd like to choose from Loongson family.
Original mail also metioned that it will downgrade to use MIPS3 in the
future, that means rebuilding the whole archive and creating a new
rootfs, which is able to work on Loongson 2E/2F.
