In my opinion, it should never have existed.  The vast majority
of MIPS-specific kernel code can be identical for 32-bit and 64-bit
versions of the architecture.  Creating arch/mips64 (as opposed
to arch/mips/mips64 or Ralf's arch/mips/mm-64) caused duplication 
of modules that then needed to be maintained in parallel - but which 
often were not.
