Could we ask the backends maintainers of the mipsisa64-elf backend,
similarly to what has been done for ppc64el? Last time I asked Matthew
Fortune almost 2 years ago, he told me that the embedded mipsisa64-elf
platform (a primary GCC platform) can be used to demonstrate pretty
much any bug in mips therefore making every mips architecture a primary

Let ask him his opinion publicly. I have Cced: him.
