I tried to add nanoMIPS testing using the Codescape toolchain
suggested by MediaTek [*], unfortunately QEMU user-mode is not
able to run any nanoMIPS binary. Various pieces are missing.
In particular, mainstream QEMU doesn't implement the p32 ABI,
ELF binaries are handled as o32 and the syscall table doesn't
match anything correct.

I am sorry but I can not proceed further with this patch.
