I have not seen that failure before.

You may want to reach out to Gentoo or other distros
to see what their glibc test failures look like.
The distro maintainers are listed here:

Building and validating a cross toolchain is a difficult 
process and the failures vary by compiler, environment,
and flags.

I would be very happy to have you provide a MIPS testsuite
failure list and add it to the wiki to help other developers.
