Thanks for the note.  Although changing it to MIPS64r2 might seem
obvious, the danger is that the support for the MIPS64r2 and Loongson
extensions might interact badly, especially on the GCC side.  So I think
we'd need to test specifically with -march=loongson3a rather than
-march=mips64r2 -mtune=loongson3a.  (The patch doesn't change the
behaviour of -mtune=loongson3a.)

If you've also tested the patched GCC and binutils in the same way
with -march=loongson3a rather than -march=mips64r2 -mtune=loongson3a
then that's plenty of testing, thanks.
