Subject[PATCH 2/2 v4] MIPS: Ingenic: Disable broken BTB lookup optimization.
Date
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 feature will cause
BogoMIPS and lpj calculate in error. Set cp0 config7 bit 4 to
disable this feature.
