Update MIPS kernel builds to work with mips-gcc.

Authored by jhb on Oct 14 2019, 9:45 PM.


  • Use a default -march of mips64 on N64 and N32 kernels.
  • Set the endianness (via MIPS_ENDIAN) and ABI (via MIPS_ABI) in CFLAGS from MACHINE_ARCH. ARCH_FLAGS now only sets a different -march value if needed.
  • TRAMP_ARCH_FLAGS inherits MIPS_ENDIAN from MACHINE_ARCH but does not set the ABI since XLPN32 needs an N64 ABI for the trampoline loader. When TRAMP_ARCH_FLAGS is used it must set both -march and -mabi.
Test Plan
  • make TARGETS=mips CROSS_TOOLCHAIN=mips-gcc
