Well this just means that valgrind refuses to run on Loongson. The code
which triggers this bug hasn't yet run at this point.

However, if I hack /proc/cpuinfo so that it pretends to be an Octeon
machine, then valgrind does work correctly on Loongson 3A machines (at
least ls works). I can also get valgrind to work correctly on the CI20.

It seems this bug is Octeon specific. I'm downgrading the bug on that
basis since it doesn't affect mipsel in general. It just so happens that
the majority of the buildds and the 2 mips porterboxes are Octeons.
