MIPS: Loongson: Add CPU_LOONGSON2F_WORKAROUNDS

As documented in the  Loongson 2F User Manual [2, 3], the old Loongson2F
series (2F01 / 2F02) have the NOP & JUMP issues which requires workarounds
in the kernel and binutils.  This issue has been rectified in Loongson 2F
series 2F03 so no workarounds needed.

Now that the workarounds [1] adding the the -mfix-loongson2f-nop and
-mfix-loongson2f-jump options have been comitted to the binutils the CVS
repository), we can add the workarounds in the kernel.

The workarounds have no significant side effect on the system but may
decrease performance so we control them through a a new
CPU_LOONGSON2F_WORKAROUNDS config option allowing the users to only enable
it as necessary.

Loongson 2F01 / 2F02 processors have the NOP & JUMP issues which
require workarounds. Without workarounds the system may hang
unexpectedly. For more information please refer to the gas
-mfix-loongson2f-nop and -mfix-loongson2f-jump options.
Loongson 2F03 and later have fixed these issues and no workarounds
are needed. The workarounds have no significant side effect on them
but may decrease the performance of the system so this option should
be disabled unless the kernel is intended to be run on 2F01 or 2F02
systems.
If unsure, please say Y.
