mips-img-* uses R6 as the default and is preferred triple moving forward
since MIPS is now Imagination. R6 includes such significant changes that
we'd prefer to keep it separate and will therefore continue using
mips-mti-* for R2/anything <R6.
This will be more obvious from the GCC patch which I'll be posting as
soon as I can.
