Yes, you're actually right. It has been missed out. We do shift the offsets
right by 2 when we link objects including R_MIPS_PC16 with gld. This is
however nothing we want to generate with gas. IRIX as is actually reluctant
to assemble branches to symbols as well. I think IRIX ld pukes on R_MIPS_PC16
whenever it gets the chance.
