Not everyone uses your MIPS patches; I have a completely functional
MIPS system with:
0019df30 l     O .data  000011b8              _new_sys_errlist
0019df30 l     O .data  000001ec              _old_sys_errlist

(That's 1134*4 in the new one and 123*4 in the older one).  There's a
lot of these beasts deployed and I'd hate to see an incompatible change
now!
