ok, but compiling IP27 with your patch gives

WARNING: unmet direct dependencies detected for NUMA
  Depends on [n]: SYS_SUPPORTS_NUMA [=y] && SMP [=n]
  Selected by [y]:
  - SGI_IP27 [=y] && <choice>

If I use "select SMP" instead both ip27 and loongson64 compile.

If you are ok with this change, I'll change it while appling your
patch.
