By set config7 bit 4 we are disable the BTB lookup optimization and enable
BTB lookup for short loop.

OK, I'll change it in v4.

According to Ingenic's explanation and Paul's old patch in

https://github.com/paulburton/linux/commit/0d72377bd615d00e99733adc0d37e6a2373fcde7

In order to further reduce power consumption, the XBurst core by default
attempts
to avoid branch target buffer lookups by detecting & special casing
loops, this is
what you mentioned as "BTB lookup optimization". Enabling this feature
will avoid
branch target buffer lookups for loops. And now we are disable this
feature, so it
should be "MIPS_CONF7_BTB_LOOP_EN".
