Hi Jiaxun-

Thank you for developing this for KiCad.  A couple questions:  Do you expect this to work generally with all little-endian MIPS64 processors?

Yes, it should works on all MIPS64 processors including big-endian
processors, they share the same N64 ABI.

Can you recommend an emulator that others could use to test this?

Just tested on a chroot environment by qemu-mips64el with Debian sid
rootfs. It was hard to run GUI but it have passed the test proposed in
'[RFC/PATCH] Generic utility tool'.

OK, I'll confirm that KiCad runs as expected in qemu-mips64el with this patch. I see minimal issues (mostly around support) with this patch. That said, as long as Jiaxun can pitch in for bug reports from Loongson platforms, I see no issues here. Anyone have concerns here?
