I'm not at all an export of mips, I really don't know that much
about it.

We have 3 mips ports, but mips and mipsel are the same ABI, it's
just big endian vs little endian. But as far as I understand it,
we transitioned those 2 ports from one ABI to an other, so they
are compatible with yet an other ABI. I think that at least makes
4 ABIs we care about. And I think gcc supports many different ones
depending on compiler flags you give to it, but I really don't know.
