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?

Looks good to me:

 - only affects MIPS N64
 - Loongson errata are handled (IIRC that is mostly about branch delay
 - also submitted to Boost, so no regressions if we ever get back to a
state where KiCad doesn't need to ship assembler code.


Hey Tom,

Since the context switching is your code, are you opposed to this.  I
don't see any reason not to include it but you are more familiar with
this code than I.



Did this get lost? Is anyone opposed to merging support for extra processors?
