Patch split into multiple parts.

This part removes an unused and commented out buffer.
This part also replaces a use of deprecated_frame_register_read with

Tested on a --enable-targets=all build using make check with board files
unix and native-gdbserver.
I do not have a MIPS machine to test on.

Ok to commit?

2017-05-05  Alan Hayward  <>

	* mips-tdep.c (mips_o32_return_value): Remove unused buffer.
	(print_gp_register_row): Use get_frame_register_value.
