The LLVM bug on mips has been fixed recently with an insanely large patch, so it will eventually get in, but unless someone wants to spend their own time backporting it, mips is going to continue to fail and there's really no point keeping on trying to build it.

As a temporary solution to unblock, I've built the package on a
loongson-3a box and uploaded. It is the same hardware as eberlin.d.o,
which in turn suggests this could be related to Cavium hardware.
