 I guess you want to remove rtld-oformat definitions from
sysdeps/mips/mipsel/rtld-parms and sysdeps/mips/rtld-parms as well.  They
become dead code after your change.

 Alternatively define rtld-oformat to elf(32|64)-trad(little|big)mips
where appropriate and require a minimal version of binutils in
sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/mips/configure.in.  The requirement should be
forced anyway and I guess version 2.11.1 may be a good candidate once it's
out.
