Just learned from Loongson that the latest generation of Loongson-3
doesn't have LLSC errata, also for Loongson 3A R2/R3, use synci instead
of sync would give better performance.

For performance approach, we'd better develop a method
to enable/disable these workarounds at runtime, looks like smp_alternative[1]
that was already employed by x86 and arm64 can be ported to MIPS and
serves to this target.

I'm struggling with device drivers recently so wish somebody
can take a look at it.
