Big thanks for working on that. I have done some tests with it and
-mtune=mips32r2 is the culprit not -march=mips32r2. This is kind of
unexpected, but at least it is consistent with the mipsel issue. This
means the optimization happens when scheduling the instructions. This
also means we have an easy workaround without lowering the ISA. I'll
commit that so that's in the next gcc upload.

I'll also try to better understand the issue so that I can report the
bug upstream.
