you are right, use eb in a chroot env of openwrt etc env is a use case.

What CPU is your router? mips r2 is a quite old ISA standard,
they are published in 2002, why your router didn't support it?

yes, Loongson 2f is only support MIPS II/III.
I have no idea if it is valuable to downgrade mipsel to MIPS II,
at the same time, Loongson 2f has some other bugs, which will ask for
gcc/glibc patch, which will slow down the binary on other CPUs.
