This is because although all server- and desktop-class LoongArch models have UAL, the embedded-class (Loongson-1 and Loongson-2 series' older models) doesn't, and some of them e.g. Loongson 2K1000LA are readily available on the market so they're arguably relevant. We don't want to generate misaligned memory accesses for those systems only to fall back to much slower emulation later.

If so, CPUs that support UAL will not benefit from this feature in default build (i.e. without -march or -mcpu or -mtune being specified).

Does `generic` model mean the `lowest` model or the `most popular` model?
