Yep it's a hardware problem. The following assembly dies (raises SIGILL)
at 'sqrt.s' on the Loongsons and works everywhere else:

        .set mips2
        .global main
        .type main, @function
        lui $t0, %hi(value)
        lwc1 $f0, %lo(value)($t0)
        sqrt.s $f0, $f0
        jr $ra

        .float 1.1342362e-39

There is now only one non-loongson build machine (mayer) so it doesn't
look good. All the solutions I can think of for this sound really
horrible (stuff like disabling the FPUs) :(
