In case it wasn't clear my recommendation is:

Add a large descriptive comment about the use of __mips16
here and perhaps even talk about __mips32 and __mips64.

Given the fact that this header is shared we can't enforce
the same kind of source rules we enforce in glibc, and
therefore the documentation of the define is enough to meet
the idea of the goal for glibc right now.

My other rant was just to set you straight if you decide
to fix more of these [-Wundef] warnings. Eventually we're
going to make this an error and then we get a lot of benefits
from this process and remove a whole class of bugs dealing
with undefined macros (which is why we want documentation
in detail for macros that are checked with `defined' or
