Thanks for backing me up. Also, after discussion with Ralf on IRC,
the decision has been made to except the patch as the fix. There will
not be an additional target 'irix[little|big]mips' added. Linux and
SVR4 will utilize 'trad[little|big]mips' and IRIX and other targets
will use '[little|big]mips'. Also, when building for Linux targets,
the 'elf[32|64]_[little|big]mips' targets (IRIX) will not be built as
emulation targets.
