Right, but Vicente patch simply removes the usage of a special version
for MIPS, so MIPS now just uses whatever is the default version used
for all architectures in Buildroot. Which I think is the right thing to
do, unless there are special reasons to use a different version than
the default one (such as AVR32 need of an old version, or
Microblaze/PowerPC64LE need of a new version).
