I've not done native MIPS builds at all, but I don't think native versus 
cross is relevant here.  The main thing is that the wiki instructions, if 
and when this feature reaches consensus for inclusion on master, give 
sufficient information on what testing is needed of whether the feature 
works on a given architecture before that architecture can be removed from 
the list of those that haven't had execution testing (whether or not the 
build completes OK for them).  For example, are any special GCC configure 
options needed, or just the glibc configure option --enable-static-pie?  
Does GCC need to be a version (i.e. GCC 8 or later) that supports the 
-static-pie option in order to test this glibc feature?
