Rather irrelevent since mips5 really isn't supported in gcc, but ok. I
was more concerned with the kernel issues and how checks for processor
features was being done. Requiring -mipsX for anything isn't a good idea
(what if you want to compile for something that is not a particular
architecture, e.g. -march=r4600).
