Re: Adding loong architecture to dpkg


We hope that the arch name can use loongarch64, mainly based on the following considerations:
1. The current upstream compilers gcc, llvm, etc. use loongarch64.
2. The current upstream kernel uses loongarch64.
3. At present, there is no special convention for the length of the architecture name. If loong64 is used, it is easier to be confused with the previously used loongarch64.
