Why not just ditch MIPS1 & MIPS2 ISAs like we did with generic ARM?
AFAIK (and Markos feel free to chime in) those aren't used in anything
modern these days, just in very very old SGI machines that didn't run
linux as far as i know.
Even MIPS3's usefulness is doubtful.
I've looked into the source and the asm optimizations are so messy that
it hurts to look at, and don't seem to be easily disabled.
