In testing but not in unstable for arm? Or in testing without arm

Certain specific packages are architecture-specific; for instance,
"lilo", an i386 boot loader, should not be rebuilt on alpha, m68k,
or s390. ...
This is something set when a package does not support an architecture
or causes problems for buildds.
http://www.buildd.net/buildd/Packages-arch-specific is a global list
for such packages while buildd admins can put packages into the
not-for-us state for a single arch which seems to be your case.
You need to talk to the mips buildd admin to revert that.

Ask the buildd admins since its not on the global list.
