Re: [PATCH, MIPS] Better diagnostic on incorrect size for .reginfo

So just to summarize for the maintainers.  The last version of the
patch (
performed the test with -mabi=n32 on $newabi targets and with default
options otherwise.  The idea is that we want to explicitly avoid n64.

This wouldn't test o32 under linux64 for example which is the issue
that Maciej raised.  The question is whether the latest version of the
patch is sufficient or I should add a third test for $newabi with
forcing -mabi=32 and the corresponding emulation.

Probably not for this small test but maybe later for something more
