Quite honestly, this looks like an odd API to me.  If all
MIPS callers will have to pass in ".MIPS.stubs", then it just
looks like in_plt_section becomes a convenience for "is
pc in section.

It'd make more sense to me to refactor in_plt_section to
something like this, somewhere:

pc_in_section (CORE_ADDR pc, const char *name)
  struct obj_section *s;
  int retval = 0;

  s = find_pc_section (pc);

  retval = (s != NULL
	    && s->the_bfd_section->name != NULL
	    && strcmp (s->the_bfd_section->name, name) == 0);
  return (retval);

And then:

/* In SVR4, we recognize a trampoline by it's section name.
   That is, if the pc is in a section named ".plt" then we are in
   a trampoline.  */

in_plt_section (CORE_ADDR pc)
  return pc_in_section (pc, ".plt");

And then MIPS would have somewhere, mips-tdep.c perhaps,
something like:

in_mips_stubs_section (CORE_ADDR pc)
  return pc_in_section (pc, ".MIPS.stubs");


#define MIPS_STUBS_SECTION ".MIPS.stubs"
pc_in_section (pc, MIPS_STUBS_SECTION);

As bonus, you end up with just one place that
can typo the section name.

Perhaps missed the plan to make in_plt_section fetch the
section name from elsewhere, instead of taking it as argument,
so callers in common code don't care?
