It should be fine. syscall restart only rewinds one (32-bit)
instruction, and it preserves the syscall number in pt_regs::regs[0]
(see handle_signal() / do_signal() and this code in e.g. scall32-o32.S:)

sw t1, PT_R0(sp) # save it for syscall restarting

I don't believe there is a 16-bit SYSCALL encoding in microMIPS, at
least I can't see one in the 5.04 manual.

However, the clobber list is incomplete.
The following registers are written as outputs:
$2 (v0), $7 (a3)
The following registers are used as arguments and should be preserved:
$4-$6 (a0-a2), [$8-$9 (a4-a5)] (n32 / n64 only)
And the following other registers are preserved:
$16-$23, $28-$31
So assuming you already have $2 and $7 as outputs, the clobber list
should be:
"$1", "$3", ["$8", "$9",] "$10", "$11", "$12", "$13", "$14",
"$15", "$24", "$25", "hi", "lo", "memory"

(only o32 needs to mark $8-$9 clobbered, but no harm doing so on n32/n64
too)

Cheers
