Currently, all of the latest 2E support and the necessary preparation
for 2F(including some fixes for the common drivers of loongson2f family
machines) have been in linus' git repo or applied by Ralf for queueing
into the next 2.6.33.

I hope the basic support for loongson2f famlily machines will enter into
2.6.33 and will try my best to push it in the coming weeks.

Thanks & Regards,
