It's fine with GDB of course if the Binutils projects wants to wait
for the GDB 7.7 release, but my guess is that we are quite a ways
away from it: We need the git transition to be done first, then
we need to make the branch and stabilize it towards a release state.

Can you patch gdb-7.6 to understand the new format as well as
the old one with a patch that could be deemed safe? Perhaps it would
make sense to make a 7.6.2 release just for MIPS.
