I didn't bothered reporting it here because linux-mips website quotes
explicitly  the dependency on 3.4.4. So at least, I imagined they are
aware of it. (And as you said, no point in reporting it to gcc...)

3.4.4 does. anyway, by this phrase, I only meant: "Dropping support
for 3.4 series won't help in this case"
