I sort of doubt that the author specifically placed this under the
GPL. I worked with him a little for Gentoo/MIPS, but he seems to have
moved on to other stuff.

I have a Yeeloong, so when I get it set up, I'll rewrite the patch to
address any licensing concerns and address Alan's concerns (if it's
even needed at all, see Mark's reply).

Thanks for sending this upstream. The loongson/lemote guys seem to be
terrible about just hacking something so that it works for them, and
then that's the end of it.
