 Richard, can you help?

 It took me a little while to set it up, but I have now did this testing.  
I ran o32 testing only, for standard MIPS, MIPS16 and microMIPS code (GCC 
multilibs).  I had to tweak compiler options used in testing so as to 
avoid producing code incompatible with standard MIPS PLT entries, 
`-fno-optimize-sibling-calls' and `-mno-jals -fno-optimize-sibling-calls' 
respectively for MIPS16 and microMIPS code.  Standard MIPS code required 
no extra options.  There were no regressions in this setup with binutils 
2.23 (the tip of binutils-2_23-branch).
