Why are selective tests XFAIL'd on MIPS?

I just run check-ld in a mips-elf toolchain and got four XPASSes,
corresponding to:

# FIXME: Instead of table, read settings from each source-file.
set seltests {
  {selective1 C   1.c  {}       {}    {dropme1 dropme2} {alpha*-*}}
  {selective2 C   2.c  {}       {}    {foo} {alpha*-* mips*-*}}
  {selective3 C   2.c  {-u foo} {foo} {{foo 0}} {mips*-*}}
  {selective4 C++ 3.cc {}       {start a A::foo() B::foo()} {A::bar()} {alpha*-*  mips*-*}}
  {selective5 C++ 4.cc {}       {start a A::bar()} {A::foo() B::foo()} {alpha*-*  mips*-*}}
  {selective6 C++ 5.cc {}       {start a A::bar()}
    {A::foo() B::foo() dropme1() dropme2()} {*-*-*}}

from selective.exp.  Does anyone know why these tests are marked XFAIL for
