Very nice! I don't see exactly how the previous build bugs were addressed,
but I can confirm that this version builds. Regarding the two irqchip patches,
621e7015b529 ("irqchip/loongson-liointc: Fix build error for LoongArch") is
a good way to work around the mips oddity, and I have no problem taking
that through the asm-generic tree. The other one, f54b4a166023 ("irqchip:
 Adjust Kconfig for Loongson"), looks mostly unnecessary, and I think only
the LOONGSON_HTPIC change should be included here, while I would
leave out the COMPILE_TEST changes and instead have the driver
changes take care of making it possible to keep building it on x86, possibly

        depends on MACH_LOONGSON64 || (COMPILE_TEST && ACPI)

in the future, after the loongarch64 ACPI support is merged.

The only one of these issues that I see is the surface aggregator one.
I think we can address all three as follow-up fixes after -rc1 if the port
gets merged and these are still required.

Ard, do you have any last comments on this?

I think that would be good, yes.
