Thanks for your report and your patch.
You may have overlooked the fact that these assembly files are actually
generated by GCC from C source code (see the DEP-3 header of
debian/patches/mips-fpxx.patch), so your proposed patch is not very
maintainable in the long term.
Is there a plan to bump the baseline of our mips* architectures to r6? If yes,
then the solution is simply to regenerate the files with the updated GCC once
it is uploaded to sid. If not, then I'm not sure to understand the benefits of
this patch in Debian.
