 Not yet.  For N32 gas complains about 64-bit immediates and fails.  For
64 there are a few problems I'm currently resolving, but the kernel links.
As N32 is low priority for me, I'll get 64 fixed first, at least to the
point non-PIC static executables such as Linux work.  PIC and dynamic
linking are next on my to-do list. 

 I'm working on 2.12.90, though, as the MIPS/ELF backend was positively
but extensively restructured, so the ultimate target is 2.13.  For plain
MIPS 2.12.90 seem OK.
