There are some comments indicating at least partial Loongson 3A
support. The main question is whether you can determine platform
at run time or not. If yes, just extend existing platform files. If
not, it probably can be implemented by building platform specific
module and selecting it at grub-mkimage/grub-install time.

Looks at loongson directories first

address@hidden:~/src/grub> find grub-core include -name loongson

as well as grub-core/Makefile.core.def (for definitions how they all
are put together) as well as util/mkimage.c (that actually generates
grub image).
