Best bet is stay and improve Debian sources, GCC already has Loongson
patches (thanks to aba) and you are able to get cross compilers from
GCC Debian sources (already discussed in this list)

Later mainline kernel supports Lemote 2F, but I remember see in the
Debian git tree some sources (owned by zobel), http://git.debian.org/
(my network connection is very slow atm, so i am unable to check)

Most likely you need
from the kernel tree.
