Yes, it is an unfortunate choice of project name (DebianYeeloong), given the other Lemote products based on Loongson2F (Fuloong and even the all-in-one desktop Lynloong) are practically exactly the same hardware base, and the same initrd and kernel can be used on all of them.

However there is now the Loongson3A laptop on the horizon, and it might be notably different from the 2F ones with regards to installation, boot-up and other issues. So naming it DebianLoongson2F could be a better choice for now.
