The above requirement is not needed by the latest
linux-loongson/2.6.32/stable branch ;) Yestoday, I have applied a patch
from "Liu Shiwei" to get the machtype from the "PMON_VER=" kernel
command line as a solution before the machtype is passed by the PMON
automatically. I will try to push this patch to the mainline, so, please
ignore the awful "machtype" from now on.
